It was late December and -30 outside with 20mph winds, yeap still to early for a blanket, wonder when a good time would be, march?

Lol probably or it was normally after it rained/snowed and the horses were soaked, not the night before it was going to rain....

Or just a few weeks ago during a warm spell with it being 40 and sun shinning bright a boarder put her mares winter blanket on to help her shed out. She hadn't worn a blanket all winter.
