Hmm, not that I am agreeing or disagreeing but this logic is rather flawed...in that in the wild horses that can't stay warm enough....die. And most horse owners generally aren't excited to cull their herds that way. Just like in the wild they don't have vets to help them give birth. The mares and foals also die a LOT. I'm sure anybody who has purchased a mare, put effort into choosing a stallion, paying for the stud fee and making sure she's in foal then waiting the whole pregnancy would not hesitate to call a vet to prevent losing one or both to a complication that modern medicine could have prevented. Just a thought.
