It's REALLY important that young horses have the ability to run around and work up a good gallop in order to strengthen their hooves and legs. Developmentally speaking, putting them out is worth the risk that they might contract an illness, especially if you provide shelter (this is best), blankets, or both. Horses are pretty hardy, even the young ones. I have a youngster right now that's actually better off than his mom as far as storing body heat and staying healthy.
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
