    checklist for things for new horse and barn

    This is my check list for the two, tell me what i am missing...

    Stormy: (Already vaccinated)

    Health:
    -Worm
    -Feet Trim
    -Iodine For rain rot

    Living Area:
    -Stall have shavings so he can just go in when he arives
    -No nails sticking out (hasn't been stalled in a while, might be over ctive)
    -Water working
    -Fresh hay available
    -Water Buckets on hand if he doesn't drink out of waterer
    -Electrolites for water

    -----------

    Move to the new barn on 1st:

    Prepare:
    -Strip stall
    -Clean all tack
    -Pack all tack
    -Buy more grain for new barn

    Stormy to prepair:
    -Practice safe loading
    -Get him at least leading well again (not pushy) if he is
    -Get him used to being touched all over or at least start.
    -Teach him to back up to get out of the trailer if he can't already (probably can)

    New barn

    -Tack in place
    -Water Buckets on hand
    -A good 1-2'' of shavings already down so stormy can just go to his stall
    -Electrolites
    -Everything signed
    -Grain area secured
    -Stall safe (no nails, sink holes etc)

    SO, what did i forget?

    How exciting, sounds like you are have put alot of thought into it. I always like to have a basic first aid kit around just incase they do anything. Over here when I moved my horse I also had to register with the local vet so that he was on their books. Good luck in your new home!

    what is also good is to have a card with your name, horse name, vet #, ferrier #, your #, and any other emergency numbers on it. we had them at college they hung on the stall, we also had what the horse got for feed and hay.

    Looks like you've got it covered! I would also go over his turnout area to check it for possible hazards-dangerous plants, any nails sticking out on the fence (if it has nails), check the electric if it's an electric fence, look for sharp rocks, rabbit/gopher holes, etc.
