Keeping Your Horse Cool This Summer


If you want your horse to be happy, you have to make sure he’s comfortable. That means making sure he’s nice and cool all summer long.

Did you know the average size work horse can drink 25 gallons of water a day? Keep his water nice and fresh. Refill his water bucket with clean, cool water multiple times a day.

Sitting in the sun all day can be tiring, and it can have a negative effect on your horse's health. Make sure he has access to shade, be it a tree, a shed, or a barn.

Keep your horse's coat brushed and trimmed to help keep him cool. If he's prone to getting sunburned, apply sunscreen or wash him with a shampoo that has UV protection.

There are many more tips you can try! Call your veterinary clinic Park County, CO to learn them all.
