I've actually never heard of this! It's awful! I'm much like everyone else - Can't they see sweat, and comprehend that they are doing no good?
Diamond and Oats have all of one blanket. A good thick one for when it a. Snows, or b. Gets below 40F. They go out in their big blankies, come in at night, and the blankets go off for a really good curry and brushing. They go back on for the cold nights, even if they didn't have them during the day, because it's pretty much -35F 24/7 here at night in the Winter. But they come off every day to be curried, and get all the itchies out, and leave them off for about an hour before they go back on.
Now Cowboy - he has 2 blankets, and a neck/hood. But both of his blankets together only make up about one of Diamond or Oats' blankets. The reason he is dressed up in head/neck sheets is because he shows, and isn't allowed to grow big hair ;) But he still gets his curry time. The blankets are never on 24/7, and I have never seen sweat or itching.
