Horse Looking out Barn Window

Owners want their horses to be as healthy as possible and, fortunately, some barn management practices can help with those efforts. Keeping ammonia and dust down in the barn, for instance, is critical for respiratory health. Storing feed and hay properly can ward off pests and spoilage, and focusing on air circulation can keep horses cool and comfortable.

To help readers learn what they can do to promote a healthy barn, we at The Horse have partnered with Sweet PDZ Stall Freshener for Healthy Barn Awareness Week. We’ll be posting articles throughout the week of Aug. 1, 2022, to help horse owners manage their stables with horse health in mind.
