Okay, clearly we have some conflicting opinions here, since KristinJ said "Use the sheet for icy rain/snow/sleet/high winds", ShannonSevenfold and Kassierae both say that a sheet will just flatten the hairs and make the horse colder, and riccil0ve just seems to think I'm an idiot.
I need a consensus here people, Jazz is naked outside right now in the 19 degree windy evening. :(
Also, I never really got an answer about whether or not a fleece dress sheet layered under a waterproof turnout sheet would work. My thought is that it would either very easily rip, or become stretched out strangely, but I don't really know. I don't think Jazz would be very hard on blankets, he mainly just eats when he's out. :)
I hate that I don't know more about blanketing - I've looked through all my books (and I have a LOT) for some kind of guideline and have looked into it extensively on the internet, but I can't seem to find the kind of information that I'm looking for.
