I'm going to have to agree with sillybunny on this one. I blanket mine or I don't at all. I had a rescue that had a nice, long coat and I didn't blanket him. My TB mares however, shake profusely when they don't have their blankets on. I have a sheet for all of them and a medium weight for two of them (the other has a heavy weight as she is the most sensitive to cold). If they get too cold even for their medium weight I add a stable blanket under it to make a heavy weight.
Anyway, I blanket mine when it's 30 degrees or under. 30 degrees for a light weight, 20 for a medium, and about 15 for a heavy (this is not including wind chill that always comes with the cold in KS)
