Well, I am in NM and I just can't stand the thought of my horses being cold so if it gets below 25F or so, I blanket my mare (not with double layers or anything, just with a light weight blanket). It makes me feel so much warmer. :) She doesn't have a massive coat; I don't blanket my haffie as she does grow an impressive winter coat. I ensure the blanket is removed as soon as it is appropriate (usually that is shortly after sun up).
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
