When we begin to switch our central heating systems on and pull out our winter jumpers, many of us horse owners begin to worry about our equine friends outside. While horses are impressively tolerant of cold conditions, as they approach their senior years their natural defences can weaken during the winter months. Here at Country & Stable, we know it is important to get into a good winter care regime to ensure your horse stays warm and healthy. There are a number of things you need to keep an eye on in the cold weather, such as your horse’s body condition, body temperature, their weight and more. You need to consider things like horse rugs, diet and existing health issues that could potentially worsen at this time of year. Do you know the signs of mud fever during wet weather? Do you know what to do to prevent your older horse losing weight when it’s harder for them to maintain body heat? If you don’t, or you do but would like more information, take a look at our handy infographic to get some vital tips on winter care for old horses…     Thank you to Remus Memorial Horse Sanctuary...
