There is no such thing as a fireproof barn. Fires can grow quickly and without warning, but fortunately we don’t have to wait for a tragedy to motivate us to start fireproofing our barns. The planning and preparation you do now will reduce the likelihood of a barn fire and help save lives should a fire occur.

Deter Wood Chewing in "Eager Beaver" Horses

By Jess Hallas-Kilcoyne - Is your horse destroying your barn, shelters, and fencing with his wood chewing habit? A horse that has taken to gnawing on wooden fences, stall doors, and stable walls can not only cause extensive damage to the facility, the splinters he swallows may put him at risk of colic or other gastrointestinal problems.

I can see it in my mind’s eye – a cozy four-stall barn bordered by white post-and-rail fences and fronted by lush, green pasture with (best of all) my mare happily grazing...all just outside my back door. And I bet I’m not alone. How many horse owners don’t dream about having their own property?

Greening the Barn

By Margaret Evans - Everyone everywhere is finding ways to go green and for horse owners that includes the barn.

Trendy or basic, the goal is the same: lower greenhouse gas emissions and benefit from cost savings.

Reduce Your Ecological Hoofprint

By Stephanie Captein - When asked about their ideal horse property, whether for ownership or boarding, many horse owners will list things such as expansive green pastures, clean stables, dry turnout areas, a managed manure compost system, proximity to equestrian amenities such as trails, and nice views of streams and forested areas. The resulting image is a picturesque vista of horses dotting the landscape and living in harmony with nature.

To our horses, and to many horse people as well, the barn is home. This often simple building is a place of rest, relaxation, and recuperation, of learning and training, of health and security, and of friendship and bonding. But if not built or managed properly, the barn can also become a danger; and even if we try our hardest to be vigilant, accidents and emergencies can and do happen.
