The Irish Field has published useful advice on how best to manage your horse during an acute cold weather spell.
Veterinary Surgeon Karen Dunne offers her advice:
Met Eireann issued a status orange alert across the east of the country and is in effect from 3 pm today until 11 am tomorrow.
The National Emergency Co-ordination Taskforce is advising people to use the time between now and Thursday to plan ahead, with poor weather conditions forecast.
