101 Horsekeeping Tips: Simple Strategies for a Safer and More Efficient Stable
Safety, efficiency, and cleanliness are the hallmarks of every well-run stable. 101 Horsekeeping Tips shares both time-honored and innovative stable management and veterinary approaches and methods to improve the day-to-day functioning of your barn. Your horses will be safer, healthier, and happier while you make your own work easier and more enjoyable. For example:
Dehydration is a good way to bring on a bout of colic during the winter. To make sure that your horses always have ready access to palatable water, invest in a water tank heater for the pasture and heated or insulated buckets for your stalls. Now readily available through most feed stores or catalogs, these gadgets will more than make up for their cost in the time and energy you save by not heating and hauling warm water out to the barn all winter. An added benefit is that horses are much more willing to drink the room-temperature water provided by the heaters than to sip ice water through the crust of frost that inevitably develops overnight despite your best efforts.
If you find that your horses still aren''t drinking enough, try adding a few ounces of a flavored sports drink, such as Gatorade, to each bucket. Not only does this improve the flavor, but it also provides electrolytes necessary for efficient absorption of water.
Whether you run a large training facility or keep a couple of ponies in the backyard, this is a book you and your horses can''t afford to be without.
