Jazz is out in a small run in the morning 9am - 1pm, then comes in for lunch, then goes back out in a grassy pasture from 2pm - 5pm.
He was blanketed last year, but this year his owner took his blankets for her other horse. I don't know what the stable's definition of 'bad weather' is as far as bringing the horses in - I know he's been out in the snow, because I caught him from the pasture when it was snowing and he was soaking wet. I also know he's been out when it's been really cold and windy. I don't think he's really cold, so I don't think I'll have to go with more than a turnout sheet - but I hate the thought of him standing outside in the wind and wet with snow, when I could buy him a wind breaker/"rain jacket" for less than $80. Does that make sense?
I REALLY like the way the Amigo is cut, especially around the shoulder, and it has a nice long drop. I'm probably going to go with that.
