Getting My Horses Ready for Spring

My beautiful Friesians, donkeys, and Fell pony are all ready for spring.

My equines spend most of their time outside in their paddocks - running, rolling, and grazing. Now that warmer weather has arrived, it's important they have well-fitted accessories to protect them from flies and other biting insects. Fly masks are specially made coverings that horses can wear when they're turned out. They protect them from bites and also provide UV protection for their faces and eyes. Inside my stable, fans are installed in every stall to keep the bugs at bay and to keep them cool. Caring for horses is a huge responsibility, but it brings me great joy to see that they are happy, safe, and comfortable.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
