I don't agree with blanketing either, but my mare is older and I think she has earned the right to wear a blanket at night. She stays un blanketed all autumn and until the middle of january so she always grows a nice winter coat. Sometimes it's not enough though especially if there's freezing rain and below zero temperatures.

I agree. I only blanket two horses right now. One is Cutter because our first show is in the winter time. Then I blanket my mare PT because she doesn't grow much of a winter coat.

People who show horses though don't want to mess with all of that hair shedding in the spring time.

Yes! The shedding hair is awful.

Equus, I believe that horses' winter coats grow mostly as a result of the daylight changing. The bigger show barns and hard-core owners who don't want their horse to grow a winter coat use lights in their barn to throw off their system. Again, this is just my understanding. ;) I could be wrong though. And then, blanketing to keep them warm since they don't grow out the shag.

That seems strange to me to keep a horse in under a light.
But I have heard that they do that.
