slushy weather and rainsheets

It's been raining/wet snowing here for a few days. We're kind of getting into winter now but not quite yet, so the weather's been up and down. I put a rainsheet on Jubilee because she's prone to rain rot when its really wet and its keeping her nice and dry. It's just a thin, water-resistant type blanket. She's on 24/hr turnout and needs to grow a thick coat for the winter, which she already is. Is it ok for her to be wearing a rainsheet? Will her coat still grow in? She'll be wearing it for about a week until this rain stops.

I think a light rainsheet won't stop her from growing it, no. :) I think that should be fine.
