Kind of slightly off topic, but I was under the impression that blanketing had nothing to do with length of coat, just the length of light in the day. We kept blankets on a few horses during a winter we were showing, and they got just as fuzzy as they would've with out the blankets.
Horses here get pretty fuzzy here unless under lights. The only ones that I see with out the fuzzies, just don't get the super fuzzies no matter what.
