My horse is getting full body clipped on Monday. He lives outside in a paddock with no shelter right now unless it rains, then he comes in. As of november 1st, hell move to a barn where hell be out during the day and in the barn at night. Just wanted to know how people blanket in terms of temperatures. He has many blankets: heavyweight rambo, joules medium weight with attached hood, blanket liner, waterproof sheet with no fill, and I'm going to purchase an extra heavy and medium in case I need them. Anything else I neeed, and what temperatures would you use what?

I have two TBs and a hanoverian and I give them all a hunter clip (legs and saddle patch still furry). This system worked well for me through 18 years of living in the NE and Midwest, though I don't think I'll need to worry about the heavyweight stuff anymore now that I've moved south. :-)
All clothing is Rambo Supreme.
