[RC] cold weather and horses - Jackie Winkleman

ALl this talk about cold weather and horses got me thinking...  Back
when I was in college, I remeber my animal science professor saying
that 40 - 50 degrees was ideal weather for a horse - most prefer this
temp range...  For some reason it stuck with me.  Was wondering if
anyone knows of any studies done on this - I can't seem to find my
notes.  
I can remember one really bad winter (for FL...) when the top of the
ground was frozen, we were on a lake and it was really swampy ground. 
We left the barn open for the horses to get in and stay warm - but they
chose to stay out in the open windy freezing cold weather.  They had
icycles(sp?) hanging from their noses!
