BR December Newsletter

Horsey Spa Day

In mid-November, we welcomed our staff and alumni back to camp to help us beautify the boys! We spent the morning bringing in all the horses to give them some much-needed love. Afterward, we joined together for a Friendsgiving meal complete with turkey, pie, and a lot of laughter. We were so happy we were able to kick off the holiday season with our BR family!

Horse Talk

Winter Fuzzies

On a chilly winter day, it’s natural for a horse’s coat to seem a bit “puffier” than normal. This extra fluffy coat creates a large insulating pocket of air right next to the skin.
Those longer hairs will act as a natural barrier to wind, rain, snow, and other elements.
Keep all of this in mind if you decide to blanket your horse this winter. A lightweight blanket will simply press the hair down and eliminate the coat’s ability to hold and heat air without adding any warmth. Either opt for a heavier blanket or, if your horse’s natural winter coat is thick, leave him without a blanket as long as he has adequate shelter.
It may take some extra time to groom your horse, but it’s well worth the effort to have them warm and protected this winter.
