Oh Canada - how we love you at -40!. You have gotten the best advice. The only thing I also do when it gets colder is give warm soaked beet pulp with oats added in. The oats give more heat because of the way they are digested (can make some horses a little silly they say but I do not find that when they need the energy for heat) - the beet pulp to help balance calcium to the phos in the oats plus has minerals and is so safe for any horse ( of course there must be an exception out there); the soaking also gives them water if they won't drink in the cold weather. I heard the vets at zoo where feeding beet pulp to help their animals in a cold snap. Keep warm - we wish we were there!
