Snow Blizzard 2015: Are You Prepared?
One farm in Connecticut prepared this morning for the Blizzard of 2015. The farm’s herd included 27 horses–a mix of minis, draft, and regular horses. In preparation for the predicted blizzard, Emergency Animal Rescue Service (EARS), with Jon Nowinski at the helm, rallied–supported by CDHR (Connecticut Draft Horse Rescue) volunteers–to help out at Locket’s Meadow Farm to prepare the indoor arena as a temporary shelter setup to keep their horses safe and secure. They enacted their emergency shelter plan, which would use the indoor riding arena as a temporary setup to move all horses inside. Note: The main barn at this location has been undergoing repairs, and out of concern for the roof and predicted snow loads, managers and emergency personal decided this would be a best-choice scenario to ensure the safety of all horses on the property.
