Remember when all you wanted for the holidays was a pony? And now that you love, care for, or have one, you just want to celebrate that. Yes, we give our horses treats on their birthday or we feature them across social media on their Gotcha Day. But the season of merriment and decoration gives us a whole month to shower our equines with extra love.
While the season is a joyous one, it can also potentially be dangerous, however. Corro is here with some do's and don'ts to help keep you, your favorite four-legged friends, and barn safe this holiday season.
What to Steer Clear of When Decorating the Barn?
Make sure decorations aren't easily available for horses to snack on.
Traditional string lights: These typical, decorative lights not only heat up to a point where they could pose a fire hazard, but the cost to power them can be up to 90 times greater than alternative forms of lighting.
What are Some Barn-Safe Holiday Decorations?
Bells are festive in look and sound while remaining safe and fairly uninteresting to animals.
LED lights: This alternative form of lighting costs substantially less, are much more durable than traditional string lights, and they don’t heat up so you won’t have to worry about the potential for a fire. LED lights allow your barn to festively sparkle and shine with holiday spirit!
