10 Things to Do With Your Horse in February
February can be a dark, cold month, making it one of horse owners’ least favorite months of the year. It doesn’t have to be, though. There are plenty of things that riders and horse owners can do this month, productive things to prepare for the good riding weather to come, as well as just for fun. Check out these tips courtesy of Pethelpful, for staying busy and connected to your horses during the shortest – but seems like the longest! – month of the year.

February is also a good time to evaluate your horse’s diet.
Is your horse receiving the nutrition he needs to sustain weight through the winter months? Snow, freezing rain and below-freezing temperatures increase a horse’s energy requirements, especially if he’s kept in a pasture or outdoor paddock. Maintaining core body temperature can often result in weight loss over winter. Winter can be particularly hard on older Senior horses – take a look at this Purina video for tips on helping your older horse thrive in winter weather.
It might be cold, wet and even snowy right now, but Spring is on the way! Remember Spring? Horses shedding, foals arriving, weeds taking over your yard? Next thing we’ll be doing is mowing and trimming! Be ready for the tall grass by getting your outdoor power equipment tuned up and running smoothly. Schedule a tune-up with the Rainbow Service Department, so that your equipment is ready when you are – or treat yourself to a brand-new mower, string trimmer, or brush cutter! Give a call to one of Rainbow’s Outdoor Power Equipment specialists, who can guide you on exactly the right tool for the job you have to do. Rainbow is the largest Stihl and Husqvarna dealer in Northern California, carrying both traditional and battery-powered equipment in a variety of sizes for everyone from the homeowner to the professional landscaper. We can prep your new equipment and bring it out to your vehicle for pickup!
