Blanketing and winter travel??? Experiences and questions
I will more than likely be doing a 2500 mile trip around Xmas time this year with my horse. He is currently not blanketed and I actually do not plan on blanketing him. We are in NM and likely headed to SC. I haul him in an open stock trailer. It does not have inserts for plexy glass panels and is fairly open on the top half. It's great for hauling in the summertime with a fly mask and sheet!
Anyways, to get to my point, I know I will have to blanket him for warmth during this trip. I am now shopping for blankets and thinking as his best advocate, he will need a medium waterproof/windproof blanket and stable sheet underneath and a hood that covers his head.
Opinions please? I'm open to ideas.
