Preparing horses and other large animals for a wildfire evacuation requires an extra level of planning, preparedness and practice. Building an evacuation kit for each animal, and having a plan for them that’s been practiced, increases the potential your animals will be able to leave when you do. If the wildfire’s proximity does not permit the time needed to load animals in trailers, it’s best to turn them loose and not leave them confined in a barn or pasture.
