I push the beet pulp and he loves it, but I feel blanketing him can only help. The other 3 have blankets but I only do them when it's raining/sleeting and windchills start reaching the teens. If it's just cold, no moisture, they are fine. They have adequate shelter and I feed plenty of hay. They never seem uncomfortable.
See that's what I was thinking. Just to get him one that if it gets bad out since the other two horses are terds. I wouldn't always blanket him. Just when it's nasty out. He hates being penned up in the other part of the barn, and then I have to pen the other two up because otherwise they will freak out, so it's sorta stupid how they won't let him in but hate it when I take him away
. Also if I would just get one for rain and wind I should just get a no fill right?
