Protect Your Horses or Livestock from Winter Weather with an Animal Shelter

animal-sheltersNow that fall has arrived, people are preparing their homes and properties for winter. If you own horses or livestock and live in a region where the temperatures can get cold and you sometimes get snow in the winter, your animals will need shelter from the elements.

The best place to shelter animals is in a barn, but many people do not have one on their property. The cost of building a new permanent barn can be prohibitive for many people. This is also a time-consuming process, and winter is right around the corner. If you cannot build a barn, a good alternative is to set up a portable animal shelter to protect your horses or livestock from the weather.

Features of Animal and Livestock Shelters

Shelters of America has a line of portable animal shelters in a variety of sizes that you can set up in a field to protect your horses and livestock in the fall and winter. Our portable animal shelters are made from durable materials that can keep your animals protected from harsh winter weather.

Our animal and livestock shelters are made from 1.90 inch OD galvanized steel frames. The rafters can be spaced 4 feet apart, or 3 feet apart to give the shelters additional strength. The covers are made from 24 mil thick rip-stop polyethylene to provide protection from all weather for your animals. The material is white to allow light to filter into the shelter.

The sides of the shelter can roll up five feet for ventilation on warmer days. The end panels can be made from your choice of 70 percent knitted shade cloth or solid white. The shelter has doors at each end that are 10 feet wide and 9 feet high.

Animal and livestock shelters are designed to last a long time. They come with a 15-year manufacturer’s warranty on the cover and a 3-year warranty on the frame and parts.
