I have never blanketed my horses in the past, but I am now at a new stable where they are out all day long and there is no run in for them (the owners are busy building these but, at present, not all of the pastures have them). They do have hay and water available to them at all times. There is a building along one side of the pasture that affords some windbreak protection. They both have nice thick winter coats, but with the temperatures at -15 degrees C and windy, I think they need them? My older horse is 28 years old and not as plump as she once was. Anyway, could anyone give me any guidelines around this topic?
