So we have freezing rain and possibly 5+ inches of snow coming. The last time we had freezing rain I went to the barn to check on my pony only to discover that he was shivering. I left him in the barn to dry out.
Kelo lives in a 2 acre pasture by himself with a two stall run in. He wasn't doing bad when I came over today from the past 3 days of rain. I still went and walked up to the tack shop to get him a blanket. I got an ultra light I guess if you wanna call it that. Essentially it will keep the rain off of him and keep him dry which in my belief will keep him warmer at least.
My question is: in your opinion, do you think it is safe for horses to only be blanketed when there will be precipitation? :)
And here's a photo just for fun.
Is this school picture day???
