So, I'm wondering if I should start blanketing her now? I really don't want her to grow much of a winter coat. She usually grows about 4 inches of hair (no joke, she literally looks like a wooly mammoth, you'd think that she lives in sub-arctic temperatures, not temperate Oregon, with the way she grows it) and I would really like to keep it to about two inches this year... It was such a pain last year to worry about getting her sweaty, and then when she was shedding it was absolutely horrible! It got hot really fast so the poor girl was pretty sweaty just standing around!
My plan had been to start blanketing her in two weeks or so when it actually starts getting really colder here but I'm wondering if I should do it now? It's been getting down to the low 50's at night pretty consistently here lately... Maybe I could just blanket at night and take it off in the morning? Would that do anything beneficial?
