What weight rugs should I be putting in a 5 year old shire in at night? Plus she’s got a bib clip It’s giving me sleepless nights worrying x

That Sounds good but just keep in mind horse regulate their own temp and that horses are hardy animals and are much used to the weather than us.
Thanks Hun. She’s outside at the moment. In my head I’ve got....
10 degrees and above rain sheet or nothing
10 degrees and under a 50g
Under 5 degrees a 150g
Under 0 degrees a 220g
Does that sound ok x
Does he sleep outside, inside in a cold barn, or heated barn? If he stays outside I would do medium, if I’m the cold barn a light sheet, and warm barn if you want you could do stable sheet. But they don’t really need that in warm barn, depends how cold it is. I hope this helps!
