Where do your horses go in the rain?

I rode Tiny today and before I got done it
Started raining, so we ran back to the barn to not get to wet!
I put her back out in her field, and she went straight to her "house"
(turn out shed) and staid there to stay dry. LOL

What do your horses do in the rain?

Mine all stand under the skinniest tree possible. Not any of the numerus, bushy, protective trees....Just the skinny, dead de-branched one.

In her old field, Lacey'd run to her shelter and basically hide there until the rain stopped.

In her new pasture, she's not a fan of how she can't see the gate from the shelter so she's learning about the miracle of trees as wind/rainbreaks. She's not too sure she likes the tree system since omg, she might get a little wet, but she's pretty sure that she likes it better than the shed.

Both of mine stand in the rain, they have shelter, but they prefer the rain. Besides, rain here is never cold. Always warm. So I never have to worry about them getting sick in the winter time.

Mine refuses to use his shelter (which is really more of a sun shade). He will stand out in any amount of nasty weather, including freezing rain and wet snow. Gotta love the drafts.

Ours typically just stand out in it, unless it is just monsooning. We have a small patch of woods and they'll go stand in that.

The mares stand inside their stall and poke their heads out to the run, the gelding MUST stand outside and get soaked to the bone :/

My boys can never decide what they want to do sometimes they will hide under one of the trees other times they will huddle in their shelter. Then most of the time they will just continue on with what they were doing as though the weather didn't change even if its really heavy.

Mine live outside 24 x 7 so they don't have rain issues - if its really torrential they tend to turn their butts into it though...

Usually they just continue grazing
