The number one killer of horses is not viruses, or disease. It is Barn Fires!
Keep your horses safe from the leading equine disaster.
The three essentials of keeping your horse safe from a barn fire are prevention, preparation, and safe response.
Barn fires are one of any horse owner’s biggest nightmares. In just a few minutes of heat, smoke, and fury, thousands of dollars of saddles, bridles, hay, grain, and equipment can be lost along with the barn. That your horse could be trapped inside is almost too painful to imagine.
Preventing barn fires and being well prepared to deal with a fire can mean the difference between life and death for your horses.
If you have a barn, it's essential that you understand how fires start and how to deal with them. But the single most important thing is to be vigilant at all times.
