    Abby has a lean-to, as she is not stalled, by my choice (she's claustrophobic about them and gets panicky, which I do not want because she had ulcers a few months ago. An easy preventative measure by keeping her outside), but I think I've seen her stand in it once. I know she stands out in the snow because I'll see her the next day with hair I can tell was wet. The only time she, to my knowledge, has been brought in for a storm was a couple weeks ago when we got a massive storm and it was sleeting with 30+mph, so basically flying glass shards. And the wind was blowing right into the opening of her lean-to, so my BO brought her in.

    Lacey has a really nice large run in that she sometimes uses. If she's not blanketed and it's raining I find her in there all the time. Since she is blanketed whenever I think it might rain/be too cold, she's usually out in the field rain or shine. However (I found this very interesting) she seems to hate snow. Every time it has snowed this year, I'd go up to check on her and there she'd be, nickering and whinnying at me from her shelter like she was stuck in there.
    Silly girl!
