If not born outside on pasture, the mare and foal should be given time in a paddock or on pasture already from day one. Care should be taken to ensure that the fence is clearly visible to the foal, which may not be the case for electrical fences. Weaning may be a stressful experience for both mare and foal and should be carried out gradually. This could for example be done by placing mare and foal in adjacent boxes during the night while letting them out together in a paddock or on pasture during the day for a week or two.
Weaning should preferably not take place the foal has reached five months of age.
Horse owners or those responsible for premises, where horses are kept, may wish have the welfare of the horses under their responsibility assessed. A protocol (AWIN welfare assessment protocol for horses) for this purpose has been developed. It is important to note that correct use of this protocol requires adequately trained assessors. It is also important to note that such an assessment can’t replace daily inspection or a clinical examination, when disease or injury is suspected or identified.
Although some horses die of natural causes or due to accidents, horse owners may at some point have to face the difficult decision to end the life of their horse. The options are euthanasia or slaughter. Slaughter is an option, unless the horse has been declared as not intended for slaughter for human consumption. Euthanasia will typically take place on the premises, where the horse is kept, whereas slaughter will involve transport for a shorter or longer distance, and maybe even through a market. Before the decision for slaughter is taken it is necessary to access whether the horse is fit for the intended journey to the slaughter house. Furthermore, for animal welfare reasons transport of slaughter horses over long journeys should be limited as far as possible. Euthanasia should always be performed, when a horse is in severe suffering, which does not respond to treatment, or when a horse has a chronic, incurable condition, which cause pain or distress. A horse should never be abandoned.
The indoor climate is important for the welfare and health of horses. An inappropriate indoor climate can be damaging, especially for the respiratory system of horses. Dust levels, relative air humidity and gas concentrations should therefore be kept within limits that are not harmful to the horses. This requires adequate ventilation natural or forced, which gives a good and evenly distributed airflow through all parts of the horses’ accommodation without unnecessary draught. Dust levels should be kept at a minimum. To get an impression of the dust level in the accommodation a piece of black paper can be left in a place out of reach of the horses for a couple of hours. Then move a finger across the paper to get an impression.
