PREPARING YOUR HORSES AND LARGE ANIMALS

http://www.storm99.com

Livestock should be boarded in barns strong enough to withstand a full storm surge. Otherwise, they may be better off in a fenced pasture.

IDENTIFICATION

You can buy plastic bands like those worn by hospital patients for horses and other animals. Area tack shops have the order forms. Other options include shave your phone number onto your horse's neck or weaving a luggage tag into its tail.

Take a photo of yourself with your horse or animal and write a detaileddescription of it on an index card. Keep this information secure. This will help prove the animal is yours if it gets loose.

STAYING

Fill large plastic garbage cans with fresh water and secure the lids with elastic cord. Keep at least a two-week supply of fresh water and feed on hand.

Clear your yard of branches and anything else that could blow free. Everything that isn't nailed down should be.
