RE: [RC] Do Pastured Horses Come In Out of the Rain? - Snodgrass, Bonnie
find is importent is having a place that they can be confined in if there is a
need. A good run-in can be constructed so it can be used as an enclosure in case
of injury, illness, etc. By the way, I'm originally from western Oregon where
rain rot reigns. It is really necessary to bring horses in and let their skins
really dry out to prevent rain rot or to get rid of it.
Well, I live in
southern California like a mile off of the beach, and my two boys are in a
nice big pasture. I have a great shelter and mats for them,,,, but sadly for
me, they perfer the rain. It is cold of course , but they grow coats. I feed
them under the shelter but they really like the rain.
