Rugging in cold weather

I've got a problem with Reeco's mane and full neck rugs. It appears that when I double rugged him his rug rubbed the bottom half of his mane out!

He had his normal neck stable rug on with a full neck turnout over the top. Up untill this point the full neck turnout has not rubbed at all!

Now it has been -20Celcius at night and yesterday is was -3 at midday. Silly pony has not even grown a hint of a winter coat, it is lovely to look at but the poor boy is freezing!

He hasn't been rugged heavily at all before this so I think he is just one of those ponies who doesn't do winter coats!

Help! I don't want to loose any more mane but the poor booy is freezing.

I've never had a horse who didnt grow a winter coat, stan used to grow one 6 inches deep and loved being out naked in a blizzard! Rugging ideas please?
