Exclamation Worried.....

I'm worried about my horses we've got 9 iches of snow on the ground right now and its like 12 degrees outside. Blaze and Shaggy are standing out in the pasture where I board the wih no blankets (my trainers daughter told me they were soaked) on and no where to get out the wet and cold. I'm so worried about them!

Do they have plenty of hay to eat? Are they of good health and weight? Do they grow a thick winter coat?

Is there any kind of natural shelter such as trees they could stand under?

If you don't know if they have hay, you need to call your barn owner or better yet go there and find out.

I am a little confused, you feel that your horses need blankets, hay and shelter. All of which are probably valid concerns. If you want them to have blankets, buy them blankets. If you are worried about them not having hay, find out what they have and provide them with hay if needed. If you want them to have shelter, either build a shelter in the field, or move them to another boarding place that has shelter.

They are your horses, I highly doubt that anyone is going to show up with blankets for your horses. Unless you are saying that you have blankets for them and an agreement with your barn owner that she put them on for you, and she is not doing that.

It would be helpful to know your location so we can kind of judge how close to the norm this weather pattern is for your horses.

All horses should have access to some type of shelter. A thick winter coat does no good once it is soaked through. Even a three sided shed or grove of trees can be adequate but just planting them out in the middle of a pasture in bad winter is not okay.

Have you found out about the hay? Or gone and checked on them? Or called the BO? Anything other than be worried on the 'net?

Ah, Tennessee. Well, yes I guess snow is just a tad out of the norm for you. Have you checked on your horses since? How's it going?
