Turn out in winter?
I am not sure if this should go here, but I didn't find anything else like it, so I am sorry if it has already been posted.
I know everyone varies with turnout, but I was wondering generally what people do. I just bought my first stock breed, a paint horse. I am used to having warmbloods that don't go out if its too cold, let alone snowing or anything. I want him to be able to go out, and I realize there are a lot of horses that stay out all winter long without blankets. My horse has a medium coat, and I bought him a medium winter blanket with a hood. His pasture does not have a run it, so when should I not turn him out this winter? I am trying to find a nice used heavy blanket, but without there being a shelter I don't know if he should be going out when it is really cold anyways. Thanks in advance!
