Exclamation Where Do I put my Horse During a storm?!?!

We are currently having tornadoes where I live and this is my first horse where do I put her during one of these storms? Pasture with shelter, shelter, pasture with no shelter??

Pasture with shelter. That way she can stay out of the rain if she wants. But still be able to run to safety if need be away from the tornado.

Oh you poor thing. Those tornadoes look so scarey. Definitely out in the open so he can run away. Put an ID tag on his halter with your contact info.

Ditto the above...let them choose shelter or out, and severe weather is the one time we leave halters on with their names and phone #s.

Never stall them up in a storm its better they have a chance to run then to be freaked out and stuck my horses are always free and have good shelters to run into tho my arab had a make shift shelter and a tornado came and fliped it.. he broke his leg runing into it so that's probably a bad idea make shure its a good shelter.!

Wow - your horse(s) sure has some luck - so far the leg broke by a tornado, hit by a car, injured in some other mysterious way that put his very survival into question --- that's some horse.

Good Luck with tornadoes everyone. We go through this every year and I hate it! Going to get engraved tags made tomorrow to put on halters since we may be in for more tornado drama Sunday. It's official I hate spring! I am sure it would be different if I weren't in north Texas!

We have them here in Ga also. It makes for some tense times with all the animals. I just thought about the chickens! I haven't made a secure place for them yet. *sigh* Project on the list for when DH gets home today.

We put the horses into the pastures which open into the barn lots/corrals with shelter. This might be overhangs or stalls. I think they can deal with rain and wind, but if the hail is as bad as they predict, that could cause some serious damage if they couldn't get shelter. So, offer shelter in case there is hail, but not locked in a stall in case there is a tornado that takes the barn.
