I like layering, very handy for when it gets a bit warmer/cooler, you can just add or take off. The only draw back with a stable rug under a turnout is if the stable rug slips, exposing itself from under the turnout, it can get damp so the horse is damp under the turnout.
I have one horse at the moment my tb in 2 med weight turnouts and I have my QH in a med stable rug and a med turnout. When it gets a little warmer, they'll be in just a med turnout each, and just rain sheets in spring, nude in summer hehe (hopefully anyway, last summer here, it rained pretty much the whole season - well, pretty much the whole year, gah!)
(by the way, my two live out year round, with access to field shelter)
