Life Goes on for Your Horse

By Ritchie Industries

You’re hearing it everywhere—we’re living in unprecedented times. The virus we’re all facing as a country and as a world has people everywhere adjusting to new social distancing practices. Our way of life has changed, and we have to adapt to care for the things that matter most, like our horses.

When considering how to care for your safety and the safety of your horse, it’s best to keep in mind this commonsense advice.

Keep Your Hands Washed
We should all be washing our hands multiple times a day, with soap and warm water, for 30 full seconds. It’s the most effective way to kill and stop the spread of germs. It is vital before and after feeding and watering your horse, especially if you live with others who also have contact with your horse and equipment.

Keep Your Horse Hydrated
The most important nutrient to keep your horse healthy is fresh, clean water. Using an automatic waterer to hydrate your horse is a smart idea, because the less maintenance and contact you have with their water source, the less germs will spread. And with the extra time most of us currently have, it’s never been a better time to take on the project of installation.

At the end of the day, life goes on for our horses, and while we are all hunkering down and finding ways to occupy our time and attention indoors, they still rely on us to care for them and keep them healthy.
