    New owner here with a draft cross. He lived in a snowy part of Texas and was recently brought here to a stable in Southern California with a fluffy winter coat! Although it's December, the coldest it gets here is 55 F at night and 75 to 80 during the day! He sweats quite a bit when he moves...

I hose them off and scrape the water off and then they just go back in the stall to dry. I have a fan blowing in...

    After a hard workout in the summer, I hose my sweaty horse off and turn her out. What do you do with sweaty horses in the winter? I've done various things in the past, but I want to know what's best. It can get below freezing where I live, so I want my horse as warm and dry as possible...
