Very few horses will take shelter in a heavy storm. Just like you should never take shelter under a tree.... Risk of lightening strikes and falling branches.

So they are not getting lost lol

I agree but most horses would rather stand out in the weather than to feel clausterphobic and potentially trapped. They are prey animals and would rather be able to run than be caught in a corner. its kinda funny how they will stand out and freeze than go into a shelter. Some horses will take shelter some won't.

Very true mbender, and that is the part that just pisses me off! Seeing mine standing in the middle of a sleet storm in February! Especially when their barn is all nicely bedded with fluffy shavings.

To the OP, horses see better than us at night, so their being where they are isn't because they can't find their way to the barn. One of the many curiosity's about horses! Gotta love em.:wink:

No such thing as a stupid question!

Very reasonable question considering how many times our (general our) horses stand outside in dark miserable weather.

Hmmmmmm... Mine RUN into the stalls even when light shower starts. Especially paint (it's hard to kick her out there). And they are generally 24/7 out, grew good coat already, and my paint was running wild (meaning she didn't even know what shelter is much less stall) till she was almost 2 yo. :wink:
