    Who knew? There's actually a South Africa Quarter Horse Association!

    Nope, the OP is definitely NOT going to do such a foolish thing! :lol:

    Sounds like the foam board is definitely the way to go. Does it all have to be covered/protected from birds? We'd not...

    Good to know, mroades! What's so weird to me about this is the truck has VERY CONSISTENTLY not been starting for us. We jump it, it starts, we drive it around town, it starts, and then we go out to...

    Laughing, because the truck has a recall for this and that work was done today or or will be done tomorrow. What exactly IS this thing? The truck wouldn't even turn over, mostly, and we could jump...

    I think contacting a rescue is an excellent idea, but if you'd like to try a little longer with him, I'd feed him ground beef (or turkey) and rice ONLY. Maybe even just rice for a few days. Find a...

    What's the question?

    I'd think you could easily do a bib clip and not blanket at all at those temps.
