    After 3 days of wild temps I have come to the conclusion that I am obsessing over this whole blanketing thing.

  10. 40* drop in temps tonight. How to dress outside horses

    Going from 63* to 22* in 12 hours.

    7 mph wind.

    Unless it is raining, horses will not use their run-ins. It has been raining heavily all day, but rain has gone and the cold air is on its way.

    I agree with TTP: The week before, give him a bath, then blanket him and put a neck cover or slinky on him. He will be sleek and shiny for the show.

    A ewe necked horse is used to balancing his body by using his neck.

    I thought that was odd, too. A small circle in a dressage ring is 10m = 33'. My living room is 17' wide. I cannot imagine making a circle which is 3/4th the size of my LR.
