- Yes, we like to have fun and go to BBQ's and parties, but CHECK on your horses. Make sure they are safe and calm and in a nice stall. If they're not check their pastures and make sure they aren't trying to run through their fences.
- Bring hoses out in case you have neighbors who light off fireworks and one lands in your pasture and lights it on fire. (This used to happen ALL the time at an old facility I was at.)
- Have B-Kalm, Calm and Cool, or Ace on hand in case a horse gets too worked up.
- Spray your roofing on top of the barn, poop pile anywhere that is super dry and could catch fire. (We do this to my house too, spray the roof at dusk so it's nice and damp.
- Give your horses a snack in the early evening to hopefully distract them for most of the fireworks. Most people are done around 11 or 12.
What other safety tips or experiences do you have when the fireworks are a blaze?
