I would like some advice on winter blanketing. I am in Ontario, Canada. Lots of snow, although currently pouring rain.
My two horses are outdoors 24/7. They come in for feeding in the evening then go out again. They have free access to hay and water, and a large run in shed bedded deeply with straw. Invariably when I go to see them even if it is raining hard and cold, they are outside the shed. I am thinking that it would be a good idea to leave a rain sheet on both for those cold and very wet days. Just the fitted rain sheet, no other winter blanket. Both have a pretty good winter coat right now. Can I leave this sheet on all winter? Should I even use a blanket. Advice? Opinion?
