Re: [RC] [RC] New to sport too - Diane - Diane

       Hi, thanks for the info. but you do not understand.
Florida bred horses, & Florida bred dogs for that matter
do not get a winter coat. We hardly get down below 50*, although I sure wish
we would. It is cool here if it gets down to 70* and I wear a sweater.
Something to do with the blood thinning in a warmer climate.??
  Help me here Florida people???
            Thanks again, Diane &  Brazz

"Also since he does not get a winter coat, he gets sheet at
about  55*  and blanket at 50* and under. "

He never will get a coat if you blanket at such high
temperatures!  I field board my horse in Northern VA: no barn,
just thick evergreeen to get in under.  My vets says there is no
need to blanket until the temperature gets below 15 degrees, and
to blanket as little as possible.  IMHO, 50 degrees is way too
warm for even a sheet!  Do your horse a favor and don't oput
anything on until the temps get below freezing: he will get a
coat!
