I'm trying to figure out if I should get a stable blanket + sheet, medium turnout, heavyweight turnout, etc.
My horse lives outside 24/7, but she can go under the barn overhang for shelter. However, because of this I need to always make sure the top layer is waterproof. Winter gets below 0 fahrenheit (below freezing). Late fall and early spring can be pretty cold too, but not that cold.
I was thinking about getting a light turnout blanket, and then putting medium trurnout blanket on top when it gets really cold (light+medium=heavy, right?)
Or I was thinking about getting a medium turnout blanket, and just putting a stable sheet underneath when it's really cold.
I'm also open for suggestions. The more I think about it, the more options I come up with, and I'm not sure what to do!
P.S. My horse grows a good winter coat, but she's thin skinned and still seems to be bothered by the cold. I don't know if that helps you decide...
