Last night I attended (yet) another talk by Jim Green this time on the subject of Fire Safety in Equine Yards. I wonder how many of us are too complacent about fire safety -keeping hay, for example, stored right next to emergency supplies of diesel or even a posh horsebox, or the horses themselves. I began to be glad that I don't have electricity where I keep my horses and that they live out almost constantly. With a proper risk assessment, sensible maintenance checks and clearly defined instructions for an emergency, there is less risk of losing everything.
VERY useful websites:
