We don't have any shelter for the horses this winter (we usually have a trailer with the door off they can take shelter in, but dad broke through the floorboards of one and the other is holding the winter's hay), but a good 50% of the pasture is woodlands. They get plenty of hay -- probably a bit more than absolutely needed.
My question is this: How can I make my 15 y/o, Tanner, a bit more comfortable? Her joints seem to be bothering her a lot lately, and with temperatures from -12F to 0F, I'm trying my hardest to keep her comfortable. I've been using liniment oils and giving her bute, and even making sure she gets and extra bit of hay when I can. We have a winter blanket, but I'd be afraid of letting her wear it out in the pasture. Is there anything else I can be doing?
