My mare has arthritis on sacroiliac joint, probably with calcification going on. I was advised to keep her hind end warm, so muscles are loose. Now I'm really thinking about blanketing her...
But I never did it before and I don't know how to do it. I got a winter blanket when I bought my mare, but I don't know when to put it on, when off... Should I have multiple blankets? Temperatures goes from 20 at night (35 in the stall) to 60 (maximum) at day when she's outside all time.
I was thinking about blanketing her even before, because I always have a hard time keeping her weight on in the winter (she already started losing it).
What do you think? Any other things to think about when blanketing?
