Happy Independence Day! There's no denying the role of horses and other equines in the history of the United States of America, so it's only fitting that horses are a popular part of our 4th of July Celebrations! Rodeos, parades, trail rides, horse shows … all more fun with our pony partners. But, there are hazards to the celebrations too. Fireworks and horses often don't mix. Just like our other pets, horses can become frightened by the loud noises and flashes, so make a plan to keep your herd safe on the 4th of July. For oh-so-many reasons, the barnyard is not the place for your fireworks show! Check out these tips for keeping your horses safe from, and don't forget to take extra precautions with your other pets too. Make sure your dogs and cats are in a secure place. The day after Independence Day is the most busy of the year for animal shelters, as they struggle to reunite owners with pets that have run off panicked during fireworks. Fireworks are also the bane to our local firefighters too, especially this year with the extremely dry conditions and high temperatures. Have a great Independence Day and make it a fun day for every member of your "herd" too!

horse drinking waterLooks like we are in for a hot summer. With temperatures near 100 degrees, it is important for everyone – human or horse – to stay hydrated. Everyone has heard the adage, “You can lead a horse to water…but you can’t make him drink.” Indeed, there are times when this is true. A horse that is seriously dehydrated may not voluntarily drink water, no matter what you do (which, by the way, is when you want to get your veterinarian involved). Therefore, the most important thing to do is prevent this situation from happening in the first place by maintaining good hydration from the start. Fortunately, there are several ways to ensure that your horse drinks enough and maintains hydration. Check out these tips on keeping your horses hydrated, courtesy of our friends at Purina Mills.

Hot dry conditions are ideal for wildfire. Are your home and outbuildings prepared? Learn more about creating a defensible space to protect your property, and get a deal on a Stihl fs90r trimmer (perfect for clearing weeds and grass around your home!) with this month's Stihl coupon.

Defensible Space

Alert: Extreme Winter Drought Conditions have Increased Wildfire Danger Statewide.

Protect your property by creating and maintaining defensible space now.

Creating defensible space is essential to improve your home’s chance of surviving a wildfire. It’s the buffer you create between a building on your property and the grass, trees, shrubs, or any wildland area that surround it. This space is needed to slow or stop the spread of wildfire and it protects your home and outbuildings from catching fire – either from direct flame contact or radiant heat. Defensible space is also important for the protection of the firefighters defending your home.
