I know, I know, 27 degrees isn’t THAT cold to most of you out there, but for those of us in Northern California it is positively arctic. In my part of California, it is rare that it dips down beyond the low 40s at night. We don’t have to deal with snow, driving rain or biting wind, so for the majority of the winter a body clipped horse in good weight can rock a mid-weight blanket and be just fine, even if they live out. With the cold creeping in though, I had cause to whip out the “three nights a year” neck-rug. Blanket shopping is one of those things that I have a love-hate relationship with. I’m still in the love phase as I have hope I’ll find something that doesn’t rub my mare. The hate for it comes in around late January when I realize exactly how much I’ve spent on blankets this season and still can’t find a blanket that doesn’t rub her shoulders!
