It looks like winter is trying to barge into fall this year. Cold drizzles and stormy skies may loom, but Carhartt Rain Defender®’s got you covered. Horses still get hungry when it’s raining, stalls still need to be mucked, and you still need to get out there and work. Just ask Ellen and Jupiter, water rolls right off this Quick Duck® Jefferson Jacket letting you focus on the tasks at hand.

It’s important to keep horses well exercised, happy, and healthy even when the weather isn’t agreeable. Make sure they’re well fed; this helps keep them warm during the digestion process. It’s true that horses can handle lower temperatures than humans, but when it’s really chilly a blanket or extra hay are good solutions. Keep the blankets dry; a wet blanket has bad connotations for a reason. When resting against your pal’s back for too long, rain rot skin disease becomes a greater risk. To further prevent rain rot, groom your horse often, removing any scab-like lesions along the way. Don’t share grooming tools amongst your animals and keep things clean and dry.
