Ok so its coming into winter soon here and the cold is starting to slowly creep in. Smarty cut her chest and legs up nearly 2 weeks ago and since then hasnt had a rug on. Its looking good now, I've been pulling the scabs that are falling off off(just applying gentle pressure, some slide off the ones that don't I have left) but apparently we got rain heading for us. Now its been raining this morning and in my opinion was pretty cold. I'm rugged up and under my quilt. But I know horses are different. Everyone else out there has their rainsheets on but smarty. She has no other horse in her paddock and the only shelter she has is one tree and a big bush. (three tree hands over her paddock but is not in with her)
She gets a tad cold but because of her cuts on her chest I know it would rub. Is there anything that I could do if the rain sets in really bad for next few days that I could do so that she could have her rainsheet on but so that it wont rub, like buy some type of thing that goes on their chest and stops from rubbing or something? I wont put her rug on unless she starts shivering.
