To winter, the horse is not sick, was cheerful and healthy, you need to take into account the many nuances. The horse quickly adapted to different conditions of life, including a change of seasons. But it also depends on its breed. For example, Kabardian horse breed from my stables, born and reared in the mountains, to the end of October fully complete the molt and "dress up" a dense winter "coat." A purebred Arabian horse continues to fade almost whole of November. In this case, they all receive the same diet, including flax seed decoction of porridge – to accelerate molting, and all the daylight hours, regardless of the weather in the open air. When the content horses in the winter the main condition – the lack of drafts and not too high temperature in the stable. I built a small barn for 4 horses total area of 54 sq ft, 36 sq ft of which is occupied by stables, and the rest – amunichnik and pass with interchanges for forging and cleaning in the winter.
