    Nah, if your keeping her inside at night she doesn't need a blanket. My horses are outside during the day if its over 20 degrees and inside at night. I only blanket them when it gets below 20 degrees. They hateeee blankets and they just cost extra money! They're horses! They're supposed to get dirty and play in the snow. Your horse has a lot of hair. Just give her a lil more food and lots of good hay! Let her have fun in the mud! And be glad that she isn't white! ;)

    I am going to disagree with you Horsegirl. Most horses do not need to be blanketed. The mare in the OP... I would blanket her is she were mine. Just so all the food going in is going towards putting meat on her bones and not just going to energy to keep her warm.

    You could try a waterproof sheet...That would give the protection from the mud without a whole lot of added 'heat'...although as mentioned before, blanketing in and of itself in this kind of instance wouldn't be a bad thing, given her body condition. My geuss is she may not necessarily "roll" alot, but lays down alot, and likes to sprawl out and sunbathe.

    I've put a blanket on her. She seems ok with it, and she is cleaner too. I guess she'll be happy this way. But I will blanket her only if it's below 0 degrees outside. If it's over 0 degrees I don't think she'll need it. I have only winter blankets so they are very thick. Thank you all for the advices
