After reading this whole thread, you can see both sides of the story guys.
This forum is a place where people can ask for help, opinions or share horse moments.
Now, everyone has given maja5 their own opinions, being horse owners with experiences. Unfortunately, there are ways and means of saying things, and some times those things come across as very rude, its very hard to convey emotion over a reply!
Its different in every country, and like others have mentioned, once you start putting a coat on, you have to keep on putting coats on. If the foal is in good condition, then I would leave be. As far as I am aware however, in the UK (I presume you say UK as you mentioned RSPCA) animals are supposed to be provided with access to water and shelter?
Keep an eye on the foal, if his condition worsens, you can always phone the RSPCA then. Until then, I would leave him be to see how he gets on. UK winters aren't really that cold ;)
