I would leave them out 24/7 - Yep, even in bad weather. They are growing - They need time to just be horses, to be silly, to learn how to behave out in pasture, to learn how to stay warm and stay cool - And most importantly, they need to move around on their developing bones to give them the best chance at growing into strong, sound horses.
I have nothing but bad things to say to anyone who thinks it is ok to keep any horse, let alone a growing baby locked inside all winter.
My dad's boss breeds racehorses (TB's) and his foals are out all year round, with no shed - Only trees/ridges for shelter.
