You never know when a disaster will hit – and unfortunately, it doesn’t wait for you to be ready! There is a wide range of disaster types, and each one is capable of causing devastation in its path. In the horse industry, you need to prepare your whole family for a disaster, even your four-legged family members. Be prepared with these five steps that can be used in any disastrous situation:
- Make a check list of each horse in your barn. Be sure to include the stall they are in and emergency contact information if they’re owner is boarding their horse. This will help you to check off horses as they are loaded into the trailer and to make sure no one is left behind.
- Keep an inventory of your supplies for insurance purposes. You will want to list what you have, how much the cost was (a receipt is always best), and what area of the barn each inventory is located in.
- Arrange a safe location for your family and animals. Make sure the safe location has enough room to accommodate your party size.
- At your safe location, store at least 72 hours of supplies including fresh water and food. These supplies should be stored there prior to an emergency.
- Map out an evacuation plan and practice, practice, practice!
Felt hat season is here! Whether you wear your hat to show, farm or kick back with friends around a campfire, our hat experts are here to crease your hat for that custom look you’ve always wanted. The most important point in selecting a hat crease is that it should compliment your face. Persons of shorter stature should choose a hat with a lower crown and shorter brim. It is also important to consider the breed of horse and discipline you are showing.
Rod’s offers a selection of hat creases to help you choose what is right for you. Let our hat shaping expert’s custom shape your new hat. We can custom crease your hat any way you choose but for ease of ordering, we offer three of our most popular creases: The Quarter Horse crease, The Cattleman’s crease and The Cutter crease.
- The Quarter Horse crease is the most popular crease among Rod’s customers. The crown features longer vents, the front of the brim is squared and the sides are rolled moderately cupping the back.
- The Cattleman’s crease is a more traditional crease that is complimentary mostly to persons of larger stature. The sides are rolled and the back is dipped slightly.
- The Cutter crease is similar to the quarter horse crease with a wider squared front brim. Sides and back of brim are flatter. Cutter bumps in vents on crown are optional.
We offer free hat shaping for the life of all hats purchased at Rod’s. The hat must be shipped or brought into our retail store in Columbus, OH. We do not honor this service free of charge at road shows.
We have a professional hat shaper available during normal business hours seven days a week that can answer any questions you may have regarding hats or hat creases.
