Get Your Barn Ready For Winter

October 20, 2017

It's fall and that means it's the perfect time to start planning for the colder, drafty days ahead. A simple inspection of your horse barn can help identify areas in need of maintenance to ensure your barn is in tip-top shape this winter. 

 

Here's a Quick To Do List: 

Check for Drafts  - If your barn is older, check doors and windows and cover any holes that let in too much air. 

 

Check Door Sizes  - Check to make sure your barn end doors fit properly and provide plenty of coverage from side-to-side and from top-to-bottom. 

 

Inspect Bulbs and Electrical Systems  - Replace light bulbs and fix electrical issues now before it gets too cold and dark. 

Focus on Your Feed Room  - Clean up your feed room and make sure all grain is securely covered to help reduce the risk of rodents and insects. 

 

Prepare Water Supply  - Keep a close eye on water troughs and take measures to prevent the water from freezing.
