So you're saying a blanketed horse is cold because it can't fluff? No that doesn't work. I know some people are really anti blanket but there is not a universal answer. Some horses need or prefer blankets. My horse would absolutely be shivering and probably dead at -42, and he's not clipped. He also doesn't grow much of a coat.
Tough 1 blankets run true to size in my experience. I have their giraffe print rain sheet and its going strong for two years now. Posted via Mobile Device
