Ideas For Decorating Horse Property For Christmas

 

                                           Christmas Decorating for Horse Property

 

The Christmas season brings holiday decorations and lights of all different types to the home.  The same can be done for the barn and the property itself, but it should be done keeping the safety of the horses and animals in mind.

 

Barn aisle with Christmas decorationsWhen setting up the decorations and lights, be sure to place them where they are out of reach of the horses and the animals.  They tend to be curious.  During their investigation and playfulness, they may try to chew the lights or decorations, which may be hazardous.

 

String up lights around the barn - outdoors on trees and shrubbery as well as on fences.  Be sure they are UL rated and are intended for outdoor use.  String them out of the reachChristmas decorations on the barn of the horses.

 

Greenery may be placed in the barn, but be careful where they are placed.  Some of the pines and berries may be poisonous, not to mention the sap may drip onto the horses, which is difficult ro remove from their coats, manes and tails. 

 

Shiny tinsel looks attractive.  The horses most certainly will enjoy playing with this new "toy".  Be careful where they are placed.  If eaten, these may cause digestive problems for the horses.

 

Go ahead and put up a tree in the barn, if you wish.  If it is a real tree, be sure to water it regularly to keep it fresh.  When it begins to dry out, it may become a fire hazard putting the lives of the horses and animals on the line.

 

Barn decorated for ChristmasWhat adds a nice touch is to hang a Christmas stocking on each stall door.  Each one labeled with the horse's name.  The horses will love the extra goodies they receive during Christmas.  After all, they worked hard all year and deserve some extra treats. 

 

Go ahead and decorate your barn and horse property for Christmas to brighten them up for the holidays.  Just remember to keep safety in mind when you do.

Sam,

The lights and decorations add a little more to the property during the holidays.  Some owners do put antlers on their horses.

Richie,

It does make sense to have snow.  So far we have seen very little of the cold weather here in the Northeast this year.  We have had record breaking warm temperatures.  It feels more like Easter than Christmas so far.  It would be nice to have some snow for Christmas.
