A: "Animals left in vehicles, chained outdoors or just forgotten about to wander the streets or countryside are freezing to death at alarming rates," says Cavallo Horse & Rider President Carole Herder. "Unprecedented cold weather is wreaking havoc across the North American continent and our animals are paying a price. It is up to us to have this understanding. Our dogs, cats, birds and other friends aren't the only animals in need of special care during extreme weather. Horses and other livestock require consideration, too."
Herder reminds you to "schedule veterinary visits for your animals that are pregnant, or very young or old. Animals with diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, or hormonal imbalances (such as Cushing's disease) can have a hard time regulating body temperatures during extreme cold."
"Cold temperatures are usually tolerable, but add wind, rain, or snow and your animals will require more calories to maintain body heat," Herder says. "Be sure you offer your animals access to shelter that will block the wind. Blankets can help protect horses, but a structural shelter with proper ventilation and dry bedding is the best method of protection. If you do blanket your horses, be sure to check underneath often for signs of injury, infection, or malnutrition. And if you do start blanketing, you must continue until the weather subsides. You should also have a spare blanket, because wet blankets are worse than none. Change your horse's blanket any time it is wet and to make sure it is clean against his skin. Your Cavallo Hoof Boots are an absolute necessity, not only to protect your horse's feet, but to prevent ice balling and to increase traction on ice and wet ground."

"In moderate climates, horses' hooves thrive on a flat surface with minimal bedding to provide a firm counter effect for the hoof mechanism," Herder explains. "However, when it's very cold and your horse is staying inside, the bedding should be thick, dry and changed regularly to provide a warm, dry environment. The door to the shelter should be positioned away from prevailing winds. Do not use space heaters or heat lamps unless you are diligent in your monitoring. Fires can burn out of control—even in cold weather. Frostbite is hard to detect and may not be noticed until after the damage is done. If you suspect your horse or pet has hypothermia or frostbite, consult your veterinarian immediately. Keep driveways clear of ice, snow and mud to allow easy access for veterinarians and hoof care practitioners. Know what areas of your property become muddy and prepare sand, wood chips or gravel to help you manage paddocks and driveways so you'll have access to your horses and your horses will have safe footing. In any wet or slick footing conditions, protect horses' hooves with Cavallo Hoof Boots."
Keep in mind that your horse keeps warm when food is working through his system. According to Herder "your horses need enough calories to heat themselves. Just make sure they have enough to keep warm. A little left over is better than going hungry in cold weather."
"It is crucial to provide fresh and unfrozen water," Herder says. "Tank heaters or heated buckets can help keep water at an appropriate temperature. Your horse will not consume enough water if it is near freezing."
"Taking care of our companions is not only a responsibility, but a privilege," Herder says. "This honor can be enjoyed for years to come and through all the changes our climate fluctuations may deliver. It requires a little planning, foresight, perhaps a touch of creativity and a good helping of courage. The reward of love and friendship is always worth it."
