    Winter Blanketing

    So I have winter blanketing questions. I live in Spokane, WA and we get really cold winters (10-12 inches or more of snow and -12 or lower temps sometimes). This is a hypothetical question because I don't have a horse yet, but if the horse was in a paddock with a 3 sided shelter and blanket clipped or trace clipped would this be a good option for blanketing:
    - A full body fleece lined sleazy (head,neck,and body)
    - And then over top of that a heavyweight turout blanket with an attachable neck

    I think the sleazy would provide a lot of warmth since it is fleece lined and since it is full body it would prevent the attatchable neck on the turnout blanket from rubbing the mane. What are your opinions? Should there be more layering than that?
    I know it is still summer but I like to think way ahead - hence me asking this when I don't even have a horse yet. Ha!
