Nd, love those photos. That is exactly what MFM looked like last night. She had access to a run in and a stall but she stood out and got herself coated in snow.

Not necessarily true. Some what an old wives tale. Most horses have no issue wearing a sheet or a full winter blanket. Now days blankets are breathable and water proof. They provide a nice protection against the wind which helps them stay warmer.
Two of mine are wearing a water proof turn out sheet right now (have been since hunting season started, it gives them color) and neither are suffering in our single digit temps with high winds.
