I was about an hour and a half away from home today when I got the txt saying "ring me at home asap" -This always means something bad, it's just the extent that varies.
So I ring home and mum says "bubbles is out there shaking like a leaf and has a runny nose." So bubbles is 25 and is pretty hardy for her age but it is summer here and it was so dry and hot with no rain and suddenly (of course while I was away) BAM suddenly it starts pouring down and it is freezing.
Can you put a cover on a cold wet horse or do I have to sit here feeling guilty because my poor old girl is out there wet and I can't do anything?
I have canvas rugs that are blanket lined, I have synthetic rugs, I have canvas summer rugs and I have towels and a polar fleece rug.
Can I put any of these on a wet horse? Or can I dry her off as much as possible and then put a rug or two on?
My poor aussie imported 7yo tb gelding is outside in the cold shivering too, unfortunately I do not have sheds or stables they can go in to, they only have trees and walls for shelter.
I will be going back up to check on them again all very soon so any help would be great.
