If you are like most horse farm owners, you are always on the lookout for popped nails or splintering boards that could pierce your horses skin. (Horses just aren’t tough on the outside like cows are.) But every so often you need to look at the other safety issues which come up in the barn.
Many horse farm owners in North Carolina put a fire extinguisher in the barn. I see them when I show properties and sometimes see they are covered with dust and spider webs; they look like they have not been touched in years.
Fire extinguishers lose pressure and need to be serviced occasionally. Take a look at the expiration date. Clean off the cobwebs and dust. Keep it in an accessible location that you can grab it if you ever need it. And most importantly, make sure you know how to use it.
