    Since she has a good thick coat, is younger and has a lot of 'blubber' [lol] I doubt you'll have to blanket her.
    If she's shivering a lot you should blanket her and if you're going to get a gross wet/sleet/rain storm when it's really cold I would put a sheet on her PRIOR to the storm to keep her from getting wet. I highly doubt she will get cold though and if it gets chilly she can move around to warm up or hang out with the others.
    I live in New England and I blanket my TB because he is thin skinned, doesn't get a good winter coat, and he shivers, but the others are fine with their thick, horsehair coats.
