Cold Weather upon us

With the cold weather and winter really upon us, what precautions are people taking to ensure that their horses fair well through the winter?

My horses are stabled at night, out in paddocks during the day. I have added water buckets to their stalls in addition to the auto-waterers to help make sure they drink enough. I fill the buckets with warm water to make it more appealing to drink and I will sometimes pour a bit of apple juice in the buckets as well. They seem to really like it.

Anyone else have any winter remedies?

The hub is located at the center of the wheel and surrounds the wheel's axle.
While the axle is fixed and [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/frame-fork/mtb-frames-2]carbon MTB frame[/url] bolted to the bike frame (at the dropouts or fork ends),
the hub turns the wheel around the axle [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/road-professional-wheels]carbon wheels[/url] through the use of ball bearings.
At the sides of the hub, just inside of where the ysbike01 axle connects to the frame,
hub flanges flare out to form flat disc surfaces that contain holes for the spokes.
Spokes are needed on a wheel to connect the rim to the hub, to [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com/wheels/]carbon wheelsets[/url]provide support for the carbon wheel,
and to absorb forces (of both the road and the rider) exerted on the wheel.
However, unlike the spokes of a wagon wheel, bicycle [url=http://www.shop-yishunbike.com]yishun bike shop[/url]spokes hold the wheel together through tension (by pulling in the rim)
not through compression (holding the rim in place). Tighter spokes make for stronger wheels.
Spokes are made of stainless steel and have nipple heads at the end for attaching to the rim and tightening.
