My warmblood becomes a mammoth. He really looks like one too cause of his colour.

My TB I havent experienced his hair cause I've only had him 7 months and he was clipped when I got him. I'll probably rug them ALOT this winter for pony club. I usually but about 5 rugs on each horse. Some thick, some thin.

My TB only ever has his rug off when I ride him. SO basically he's rugged 24/7 365 days.

My Vager grows a pretty good winter coat but Nado & Jeli grow barely nothing. I don't have any blankets for my horses though, and they are out all winter, probably because I don't have a barn or anything haha. They have some trees in their pature but that's it, I give them oats on days when it is below 0 and they do great. :)

Rugged as in he has his rugs on all the time.

I'll get pics of Billy when it's winter down here. He should become really hairy during June.

We clip our horses during winter and rug them. We have to clip them cause we go to endurance rides durung winter and they get really hot having to work so hard so if they have a thick winter coat they are too hard to cool down and it's get their heart rates down (which vets you out!) and that's not good after all the hard work you've put in!!

Hi everyone,
My horse is a standardbred and she does gte fuzzy, but not too thick, so I blanket her as it is so cold here in the winter. I'll see if I can find a picture of her in full coat.
