Delregans Way, to help you explain why the other horse is shiner than the other..... its a mistery. But you seem to know what you are tlking about.
Why is rugging bad for there health LuLu?? I have NEVER heard that before..... :roll:
phew! Lol I was waiting for the barrage from everyone stating facts that would shoot me down lol
I know what you mean about temp. I grew up in port augusta in south australia and that sounds pretty much like the weather we used to get. My horses used to get hosed and washed quite regularly cause of all the red dirt/dust storms (i had 2 white horses at this point
) my guys were also very lightly rugges in summer and heavily rugged in winter. As with my horses now, the only time they don't have rugs on is if its a ridiculously hot day. Sweat rugs do wonders :) but once again, im a compulsive brusher lol I usually spend at least half an hour per horse. Its a good chance to bond more too ;)
Im also pretty interested to find out why rugging is bad. If it were so bad, would millions of people around the world rug their horses?
