How Horses Stay Warm


Storm Prep

I went to stock up on feed for Chance and Lucky before the snow storm hit…thankfully I had preordered feed in bulk (Tractor Supply is always out).

The weather has been unrelenting over the last week. We got about 7 inches of snow and another 7+ inches 4 days later, with low temperatures and hail to boot! Poor Chance has been stall bound due to the slippery conditions. Some days it has even been too icy to hand walk him.

Regardless, Chance has been in good spirits and his back legs look great! He hasn’t stocked up and he is putting weight on the back right hind. I’m hoping that when he is able to go outside, his back right twist will have disappeared! Maybe wishful thinking, but I can still hope.
