IMPORTANT: FEEDING HORSES DURING A HURRICANE - Please Read & Share

For those of you whose horse are in the path of Hurricane Irma, and for any major barometric changes, please read this valuable information from Dr Jim Wright DVM.

"The great barometric changes, especially in storms like Irma, from my experience, seems to greatly increase colic problems. I can attest after not being able to travel in Andrew, so your veterinarian may not be able to get to you. I recommend withholding grain for at least 36 hours before and 48-72 hours after a hurricane BUT give the plenty of hay to help maintain good GI function and to browse on as a pacifier."

Please share and save a life.

Additionally: From Dave Thaler, Farm Manager, Ontario, Canada

"Add a little apple juice to their water pails too...beet pulp also aids in keeping water intake up...soak properly couple hours before feeding...moist as possible".
