Purchasing your dream horse property often comes with unexpected challenges as you move from the imagined luxuries of barn life to the realities of having horses outside your backdoor. This is especially true if, like many people, you end up purchasing a home on acreage without the benefit of a complete horse set up

De-icing water buckets for horses,  assess your horse barn’s structural integrity, dust control in horse barn, mud management for horses, ventilation for horse paddocks and barns, heated horse tack room

De-icing water buckets, hauling water by hand, and pushing heavy wheelbarrows through deep snow are just a few of the things that many Canadian horse owners have to look forward to in the winter months. But we do them willingly to ensure the good health of our horses during a season that, along with its rain, snow, and freezing temperatures, also brings equine health issues such as thrush, mud fever, colic resulting from dehydration, and respiratory illnesses.

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.

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. After all, going green should mean going lean on the pocketbook no matter whether it’s an eco-home or a hayshed. Trendy or basic, the goal is the same: lower greenhouse gas emissions and benefit from cost savings.
