Fall Maintenance for Healthy Winter Horses

For example, here are some steps to take around the barn:

  • Stock up on quality hay and store it in a dry place
  • Drain or winterize outdoor hoses and waterlines
  • Installed and check water tank heaters
  • Fences and gates should be repaired, and high-traffic areas might need to be rebuilt or topped off to help manage mud in the coming months
  • Move all medications, chemicals, and other liquids to a frost-proof area
  • Give all barn areas a thorough cleaning
  • Check over winter blankets and make any needed repairs or replacements
  • Clean and store any sheets, flymasks, or tack that won’t be used
  • Have your horse trailer serviced and park it out of the way

In conclusion, Steinhauser’s has a wonderful selection of equine feeds, supplements and supplies to keep them at their best, no matter the season.

Lastly, we also carry quality hay and shavings year-round.
