To answer your question- it can get COLD in FL! We were in Disney World once and it was so cold, we had to buy heavy winter snow clothes! So yes, it gets cold!
It is about 44f (7C) where I am in the UK at the moment during the day, so winter clothing is definitey the order of the day :( , but we have mild weather in comparison to the Northern US states due to the Gulf Stream.

How many hours drive is it to take your horses to FL ?

There are actually lots of horses in FL because we can ride all year long. As for how cold, well it depends on where in FL. I'm more in southern FL so it really never gets colder than the 40s. And even that's rare. Then again if you're farther north in the panhandle or in Tallahassee, it'll be colder. So it all depends. :]

I give myself very good advice, But I very seldom follow it

^Yeah, we'll be up in Ocala-Jacksonville area in Feb.

It takes around 18 hours to get down there. And that's with just a couple stops!

As in unrugged ? I'd really hope not.

I've got a guide on my website which shows you the comparison between states of undress in humans and horses ifit is any help

I wouldn't ... since you are removing some of their coat that they use to keep warm you need to compensate with a blanket.

And their coats at this time of year are waterproof, so your also letting them get wet if it rains or snows and that will chill them
