I don't blanket at all. I have never put a blanket on a horse. I have mares that live on pasture year round and are exposed to the winter weather with no ill effects. Nature gives horses a very good way of surviving bad weather. Even if a horse is shivering it is not in danger of freezing to death or getting sick from the weather. Shivering helps warm the horse and is a natural reaction that is perfectly healthy.
There's nothing like the Rockies in the springtime... Nothing like the freedom in the air... And there ain't nothing better than draggin calves to the fire and there's nothing like the smell of burning hair. -Brenn Hill
