Yep! My horses arnt clipped and I put on a medium blanket when ever it's 25 or below.
I grew up riding at a hunter show barn, so to keep our horses' coats in show condition, we blanketed without clipping. Our general rule was 45°F put on a sheet, 35°F put on a midweight, and 25°F put on a heavyweight. Quite frankly, I'm not sure how healthy that actually is and I quit doing it several years ago. Now I just put on a sheet if it's windy/rainy and around 35°F, 25°F I put on a midweight, and 10°F I put on a heavyweight. If you're unsure about something, you can always consult your vet.
I only put a blanket on my horse when it's cold bc we shivers a lot in the winter
I usually only light blanket if I know it's going to rain when it's cold.
I personally think most people blanket through winter so they don't have to deal with spring shedding.
World horse welfare have said this 'Did you know that a horse's thermoneutral zone (the tempertaure at which they naturally feel comfortable) is much wider than a human's?
As a general rule, horses will feel cold when the temperature is around 0°C and feel hot when it reaches around 25°C. This means that when we start feeling the cold, our horses could be perfectly comfortable. #welfarewednesday
but personally I think it depends on the breed
My mom does but her horse loves outside
Hello Anja, yes depending on the temperature outside when it's really cold I put a blanket on my mare who is not clipped below 0 degrees :)
