Celtic's new blanket

The poor thing was shivering outside this morning, so we went out to buy her a blanket. Much happier little lady. Had to share her fun blanket

Also on a side note, we've decided to keep Celtic. We nearly got her for free, so it would be easy to flip her to make some money, but I have such a hard time keeping the ad up to sell her!! So for those who made offers already, she is no longer for sale.

Onto the photos.

horses actually shiver to help keep them warm. It doesnt mean their cold like it does with us people.

People shiver to try to get warm too... that's also why we get goosebumps because the standing up hair helps to trap warm air.

Shivering also takes energy, which can lead to loss of weight over time.

So... better they not shiver in the first place. Usually a good winter coat and hay 24/7 helps with that but if not, a blanket is a good help as well.

I definitely agree with the blanket helping with putting groceries on her. I think if she stays warm and dry, it will help her quite a bit. More pictures to come!

well a lot of people don't understand that a blanket can do more harm then good in the winter. So does keeping them in. They can't properly adjust.
