Preparing Your Horse and Barn For A Hurricane
 By PonyBox   •   29th Oct 2012   •   1,882 views   •   2 comments
As hurricane Sandy marches towards the U.S. East Coast with winds approaching 90 MPH and historic levels of rain and snow, the thought of an unprepared barn or stable facility is on every horse owners mind. The primary debate we hear at Ponybox is - Do you keep your horse in or out of the barn during a hurricane? Which is safer for your horse?

Hurricane Preparedness for Horses:
This isn't the typical review that you're used to seeing from me, but given the fact that we're right in the middle of storm season, it seems more relevant than some of the other topics that were in the hopper. Horse owners have a special responsibility because unlike cats and dogs, you can't take your horses with you to a shelter or hotel. If you're planning to evacuate altogether, it's even more of an issue.

Having gone through four hurricanes with horses, I understand all too well the difficulties and the planning that's required and would like to share a couple of excellent resources available to help you get ready in case a big one comes your direction. read more >>

Getting Through My First Hurricane As A Horse Owner:
My trainer explained that the barn was just going to have some wind and rain when the storm hit. It wasnít going to be bad up there. I was still nervous about my horses though. She told me she was helping out down there and would make sure my horses were fine. I thanked her and told her I would text back later and lugged my suitcase up the stairs and into my room. The first thing I packed was my album of all the horses I have ever owned. Then, I focused on all other things that were important. read more >>

Looks like we made it through this one ok. Unfortunately I don't think New York will be so fortunate.

Appears the damage from this is going to take a long time to repair. Most still don't have power almost a week later.
