Over blanketing can make a horse stock up??
One of my barn-mates was on my case because she thought I was over blanketing my guy, a senior partially clipped TB. I had mentioned to her that his RH was stocked up at the pastern and she said it was because he was too hot.
We're at 37-40 degrees at night, daytimes a little higher. His winter blanket got wet inside the neck because he stands out in the rain, so I thought I'd do a 140gm stable blanket and a rainsheet. He'd had a cold about 2 weeks ago and I guess I was worried he'd get a chill. So I removed them both and gave him a fleeced rainsheet and hope he stays warm tonight.
Anyway, I am just curious. I have never heard of this reason for getting stocked up. No heat, just an all round mild swelling.
Thanks for your comments. I'm a sponge.
