Hurricane Irene is supposed to be making her way to NC soon. Oh joy.
I'm wondering how I'm supposed to prepare for this...Horse-wise. My mare is on 24/7 turnout, because we are in the process of building a barn now. She has a run-in shed, but that's it. What should I worry about? I can't go home this week because it's my first week back at school, and I really need to get papers and schedules settled, so I'm not there to blanket her or anything. Not that she even has a blanket..Lol. If you think it's nessesary I order a super
cheapblanket or sheet (Which one?) and have it sent to the house, and hopfully someone there will have time to get it on her. What do you do in this case? Stalling her is not an option. At all.
Also, this is way less important, but I need a name for a future foal that's coming our way. He or she will most likely be a solid bay, around 15hh. I know it'll be the Grandson of Miracle Chip, but I have yet to figure out the rest of the bloodlines. (The foal is not my mares.)
I'm thinking: Keebler (Chocolate cookie comp. name) Endigo (Just because...) Paisley (Brad Paisley!)
I always name something then never like the name later, so I'm going to pick carefully this time. Unisex names.
Help on storm prep. and names would be great! Esp. the first part..
