So I have just come back from town to find that it is raining and will continue to be raining for some time. My TB is in paddock 24/7 and at the moment we have no stable for him (a new one is being built). I have a rug for him, but he hardly needs it as we get most of our rain during summer and those times are extremely hot and muggy, so rugging him to protect him from the rain usually does more harm then good, plus the rain cools him down!
However it looks like we are going to have a wet WINTER. It's currently 23°C (73°F) and we have a forecast for possible storms this afternoon and tomorrow. The storms predicted aren't excepted to be big, just a bit of wind, rain and thunder (however that could change). Usually I wouldn't be worried about rugging him, because this weather is usually summer weather and he has plenty of trees etc the provide shelter, however because it's a little cooler I was wondering if I should rug him just in case?
Thank you for your help :)
