I don't know if this chart will show correctly, but it's from the Horse Supplies, Horse Tack, Horse Sheets, Fly Sheets and much more from Schneider Saddlery
site and is pretty much the guide I use when blanketing.
I try not to blanket unless it's very cold or wet & cold out. Today we're having freezing rain, cold wind and temps right around freezing. They're all blanketed and in the barn until the rain/sleet/snow quits. Then they'll get tossed out. Next week, we're supposed to be back in the high 50's again, almost 60's, so the blankets will come off during the day and back on at night. They all have lightweight turnouts, mid & heavy weight because the weather is so unpredictable here in the winter. 60 one day, -10 then next night, 30 in day, -5 in the night (Farenheit not Celsius), 40 day, 20 night....I'm constantly changing blankets when they need them.
Another consideration here is, we're in an Exceptional Drought and have been for going on 3 years, if I blanket them at night when the temps drop, they eat less hay which saves me money.
