You need a horse blanket?
Ever thought about why humans cover their horse in winter? Breeding in winter is a standard practice in horse husbandry when it gets a little cooler outside. In the first cold day, I noticed that many of my clients are on the road with their striking blankets. Living in the heart of one of the bigger horse areas in the land, I don't have to travel far before I see one or two such animals.
Are you sure your horse is cold? The horse is a master at adjusting its own physical temperatures. It' simple for you to stand in the way Mother Nature has meant by covering your horse or holding it in a warm stable. It is also simple to put mankind' s thoughts and acts on the horse.
That is when we get ourselves into difficulties and our horse husbandry becomes poor and harmful. A lot of folks think that their horse gets chilly and that it needs a beautiful, comfortable stable to sleep in. It' a way of thought that simply makes a person think better.
It is a kind of anthropological thought and acting that is practised on a horse, against the thought of a horse and the comprehension of the real character of a horse. During the winter of 2009 we had a snowstorm in Texas on Christmas Eve.... yes, a snowstorm in Texas. I have two in my mid-twenties.
The horse that brought me into a state of normal grooming when he got laminitis is one of them. Every year I let my ponies get their winter coat. You were out during the assault and were not shielded. There' re no stands, and I don't spend my dough on chips.
I' m not bothering to spend my bucks on costly blankets. If a horse needs a safe room and windblocks (not a stable) to get out of the extremes when it decides..... note that I have said extremes. You do not need a stable covered with chips and you do not need a ceiling or a hot hayloft.
In addition, a horse rug can affect blood flow to the shoulders and cause tenseness in the nape of the head, which can lead to complaints or other bodily difficulties. It can also occur if the ceiling sits correctly when worn for a long period of use. Why pay for both, then?
Consider how much you can safe on chips over the years. Let's just think for a moment about the tasks that are all about the chips. You' re going somewhere to collect the chips, you go home and then you have to load and put away the chips. They remove the barn and insert the new chips - sometimes adding additional chips to an already embedded barn.
But you still spend on chips and the work you have to do to maintain the stands. When you keep your horse of course, you not only saves your horse a lot of cash, but also saves your horse a lot of additional work, both in terms of your own resources and your own costs. You could also spend this amount of material and resources elsewhere, e.g. if you spend more hours with your horse without plucking a stable or building a rug.
Just think for a moment about how much horse blankets are. A lot of folks own a closet with blankets for their horse, which costs enough to support a small area. It'?s no wonder a horse has a good name for being pricey. It' s humanitarian thought processes, traditional faith and great marketability that make the horse dear.
When we keep our ponies, of course, a lot of expenditure goes out the windows. It will also allow us to concentrate on more important things when it comes to the horse's wellbeing. Throwing your horse out of the stable and not covering it can help you saving a lot of moneys.
Don't just look at it and step your ill or older, always blinded, unnatural horse into the cool. I can imagine when a horse is ill. I know a groom who is native to Canada, for example.
Says they don't cover their horse even in Canada with their harsh winter, unless there is a cause why they are ill. I would suggest from this point on to learn how to keep a natural horse in good health so that it can remain in good health during the winter without covering it.
A few of them will decide to be in the snows, rains, etc. Here too, exercise is very important for a natural horse, especially in the winter season when you need more exercise to keep your muscle relaxed and generate warmth. Supplementary dietary supplements, NOT grains, in a horse's difficulty in maintaining his or her own nutrition.
If you cover your horse and if so, why. Do not tell me that it is for reasons of pride just so your horse does not look too furry or because you want it to be smoothed all year round. Don't tell me your horse is too old and you have to cover him up.
There is no need to cover your horse and it can be harmful to your wellbeing.
