Sometimes I think they're smarter than we think when it comes to what is safe. Even with a lot of trees and a sturdy shelter, when we get hurricane rain, wind, or hail here in NC, our mares are out in the pasture, packed together in a close bunch, heads down, and butts into the wind/rain/hail. The minute the rain stops in between bands of rain, they're back to grazing like nothing happened.
