    Horse Health 101: The Importance of Livestock Shelter
    Caring for horses or other livestock? Find out why a livestock shelter is crucial to maintaining animal and horse health, particularly in the summer season.

    How Hot Weather Affects Horse Health

    Horses cool off just like humans do – by sweating. Yes, it's true! Horses have sweat glands much like humans. Just like us, horses sweat when they generate energy. Unlike (many of) us, however, horses spend most of their time creating energy outside, which in turn generates heat. Since horses spend so much of their time generating heat outside, you can imagine why it's important that they be able to cool down easily and quickly.

    So if horses spend their time generating heat, how does the hot summer weather affect their health?

    Without an easy way to cool down, horses can overheat which can be detrimental to their health. In fact, when horses cannot effectively cool off, they begin to show signs of overheating through dark urine, reduction in skin elasticity, lethargic behavior, high body temperature, and other indicators. Once they display such symptoms or reach internal temperatures of 105 degrees are higher, it's important to cool your horse off immediately. If not taken care of, the risk of heat exhaustion, heat stroke, or even death greatly increases.

  6. Choosing a Livestock Shelter for Your Horses and Animals

    Choosing a Livestock Shelter for Your Horses and Animals
    When it comes to finding a shelter for your horses and livestock animals, it’s best to keep it simple. While it’s important to keep them sheltered and protected, it’s most beneficial to provide animals with the ability to move freely in and out of a structure that offers sufficient ventilation and cross breeze. Learn more about the best livestock shelter options for healthy and happy horses at home.

    Why a Barn Isn’t Always the Best Shelter Option

    When you picture a home for your horses, you probably expect they’ll need a large barn or enclosed stable to retreat to for sleep and shelter. And while these units are great for sheltering livestock after hours, they’re not adequate to keep animals out of the heat and sun during the daytime. In fact, constantly confining your horse in a stall such as this can be detrimental to their physical and mental health.

    Barns can easily become stuffy and unsanitary. Low ventilation exposes horses to dust and bacteria from their feces, feed, and bedding which leads to mucus and respiratory inflammation. Such confinement can have a negative impact on your equine’s colon and intestinal health because of their limited mobility much of the day. Even confining ponies can cause negative effects during growth and development, increase the risk of injury, decrease performance, and more.

    Even if your animals spend a lot of time outside their barn or stall, an expensive barn or enclosed structure isn’t always necessary. Horses, for example, naturally enjoy wide open spaces, and they tolerate both heat and cold fairly well. In fact, equine expert Nancy Ambrosiano explains, “Horses conserve body heat efficiently and, therefore, need less shelter than we think they do.” (Source: The Horse) These animals typically just take shelter from strong winds or for shade.

    The Best Livestock Shelter Options for Equine





    Horses benefit from well-ventilated, open-style structures that provide just enough shade and shelter when necessary without confining them. They need spacious and comfortable environments during their downtime. For an affordable and practical livestock shelter solution, corral shelters and run-in sheds provide a shady spot during the day for your horses. These shelters are versatile enough to house horses, livestock, or even bulk hay or field equipment.

  8. Meet The All-New Corral Shelter Livestock Shade

    Meet The All-New Corral Shelter Livestock Shade

    Get reliable shade and shelter where your animals need it most

    We’ve studied the needs of livestock and equine ranchers, farmers and hobbyists, and found that one of the biggest challenges lies in the ability to provide reliable shade and shelter for animals anywhere in the field.


    The Corral Shelter Livestock Shade: Innovation in Equine

    Through the years ShelterLogic has manufactured a variety of equine shade and shelter products that provide reliable protection from the elements – but most of these have been designed to remain stationary.

    Our latest initiative was to develop a shade that is functional, durable, and with increased portability: one that would be different from our line of Run-In Sheds, but would maintain the same level of quality engineering as our line of equine products.

    We set to work to bring innovation in shade and shelter; and we’re proud to announce the release of the all-new Corral Shelter livestock shade.

  9. Why Buy New? Extend the Life of Your ShelterLogic Garage When You Replace Your ShelterLogic Garage Cover

    Why Buy New? Extend the Life of Your ShelterLogic Garage When You Replace Your ShelterLogic Garage Cover

    Did You Know You Can Replace The Garage Cover to Many ShelterLogic Products?

    When we develop products at ShelterLogic, we build them to last. However, season after season of use can wear down the covers of our garages, canopies, and more.



    For many of our customers who have ShelterLogic shade and shelter products that are out of warranty, it may not be necessary to buy an entirely new unit. But did you know you can replace your ShelterLogic garage cover, instead?



    Thanks in part to the feedback of so many of our customers, we have developed the ShelterLogic Replacement Cover program.



    This initiative allows past customers to order covers for their ShelterLogic products and extend the life of their shade or shelter. Rather than purchasing a brand new garage, customers can keep their old frame and purchase a new cover in the same or new color.
