What do weight do YOU try and get horses to for wintertime?
I personally keep them at an average weight, same weight they would be during summer. But that's only if I plan on blanketing(light, waterproof blanket) them (I'm in Sounthern California and think 40*F is cold which means my horse is blanketed most nights. Especially when the weatherman calls for rain!)
Since my dad's horse doesn't get blanketed (he destroys EVERYTHING! His blankets, my horse's blanket, the pipe corral...) I like to keep him fat. Which isn't hard at all cause all he does all day is eat and sleep (My dad bought the horse and hasn't done anything with him since).
Anyways, what do you guys aim for? What temp do you throw on the blanket? Do you blanket?
