What's your emergency plan in case of natural disaster?

I was talking to my boarding manager yesterday about the Colorado fires which brought us to talk about what her emergency plan would be in the case of something like that or a tornado, etc. What would you guys do with your horses? Obviously, if you had time you would trailer them to someplace, but what if you didn't, what would you do?

Poco would immediately have his leather show halter put on (has his name and my name) as well as a small pendant I have made with all of my info braided into his mane. I have my 2 horse trailer for him and Raiderr so I could move them out on my own.

Im from colorado.. Theres not many places for people to take em places its sad... :( but skip and Capone would have a tag braided in their mane with my info on them...

My friend just got together a group of like 8 trailers some stock, 4 horse and a huge freightliner to go get some horses and cows out of the Colorado Springs fire... They spent their whole night out in the smoke and ash rounding up horses and cows.. :( I hope the fires are out by the time I go home.. or I may not have a home to go home too :(((

There is not much you can do. If it hits fast, hope your horses make it. You have to take care of yourself first. If its a tornado, Be ready to look for them after words.

Survey the area. Look for places they may go to escape the weather if they get out.
Other than that, throw a leather halter on with your information securely placed on it and hope for the best.

In our case, the greatest natural disaster we could face would be a huge earthquake. Not much you can do to outrun one of them. But, I have some critical supplies boxed up and in the carport, where presumably, if my house collapsed and I was still alive I could access them.

I would sit on my porch with the rifles and shotguns and hope my horses could outrun them before I ran out of ammo. Zombies count as a disaster right? In case of a fire, I would let them loose and hope they got of danger and hope I or someone would find them safe and return. I try to keep all my info on the halters, but idk what would happen if I couldn't get their halter on.

Well I've been in a state of disaster before....nothing to big just a minor flood........that took out parts of the dyke, cause 1500$ in damage to my neighbours house and made everyone paranoid that every time it rains hard and the wind get strong it'll flood again. In that case we were lucky enough that we could just go a few blocks back to our friends, we drank hot coco and watched TV (until the power went out) I also got on TV when the news crews came after the water had gone down and people were puttiing out sand bags and again when helicopter flew over my house. Definitely an experience to say the least we woke and got a call from our neighbour asking if we'd seen the logs floating down the street, I opened the blinds expecting to see them laughing at their joke but in stead I saw...well logs, floating down the street.

Yes they count! HA.

Zombie Apocalypse = Hope horse can run faster
Hurricane = I.D tag if can't evacuate (if need to comes up.)
Tornado = OH SDF*** moment, cause I"ve never been in one, and doubt I'd have time to drive up and braid an I.D tag into my horses mane >.<
Earthquake = Another Oh S** moment
Flood -? I'm on high ground thankfully, it would take a LOT to flood us.
Fire = Evacuation, if not possible, I.D tag defiantly.
