Heres the thing, I hear about these breeds being imported from overseas, that arent accustomed to the harsher climates of north america, like snow and -20 temp's etc. but they come here and adapt, which is pretty ironic, considering alotta other animals would get sick or end up dieing? Do horses not even get sick when they are shipped here with such an overnight change in climate? Do they not require blankets n such for the fall n winter months?
Reason I ask is because in some countries, for example India, where their winters where we live might get at a worst case scenarion -2 or so, and usually just stays at around 10-15, in the fall and winter months they still give the horses blankets, because supposedly they can't handle the cold temp? I don't get that though, I mean we got horses here that deal with -25 for 3 months in alberta, is it the breed itself?
I personally beleive that it might just be improper training altogether, they baby the horse so much its dependent on the blanket? Is that most likely the case? I personally would want it trained to be able to handle with temp's like that...
