While a snow day means some of us get to lounge around in our pajamas all day the needs of our horses don’t stop. We still need to come to the barn twice a day to give them their hay and grain. Freezing temperatures mean that we need to break the ice on water troughs so our horses can drink. If it’s cold enough the water can freeze and we have to carry water to their troughs. That’s a lot of water! Keeping the horses on a regular feeding schedule and making sure they can drink their fill helps to keep them healthy and prevents colic.
