Upper Midwest/Intermountain West chill warnings: move the horses to safety!

December 6, 2013     E-mail this page to a friend!

Low temperatures paired with high winds promise tough times for horses and other stock through this weekend. Remember that horses need to stay dry, if at all possible, and that they need protection from the wind. Move your horses or open the appropriate gates so your horses can find shelter from the storms.

The weather service is forecasting temperatures as low as -50 in parts of Montana and Idaho, and low temperatures and high wind across the region.
