There is not a 'blanket answer' ha ha ha my jokes are just so much funnier than anyone elses.
I do however believe that a lot of blanketing has more to do with making the owner feel better rather than the horse, same as a lot of fancy feeds, supplements, etc etc.
None of my current herd are special needs, and would probably do OK for a majority of the time on grass/hay, no grooming, no blankets, no fancy feeding, Oh wait, there is no probably about it, that is how they live......
