[RC] Camping in the rain - Jonni

It is MISERABLE for the horses to be tired to horse trailer in the rain.
When out on good pasture, the hroses will get into a place with less rain
and/or wind.<<<

Nope, mine don't go under shelter, they don't go under the trees, they don't
go where the wind is less. Silly boys just keep eating, and turn their tails
to the wind, and get soaked. At least, when camping,  * I * feel better
about them, as I do put rain sheets on them. At home, I can get them into
the barn area,(again, to make *me* feel better)  but they really would
rather be out in it, and keep looking over the gates towards the pasture.
The advantage to having pasture, is they can move around some, and maybe
that keeps them warmer and / or more comfortable. As to Annie's horse, she
said the horse is normally in the barn, so I would do as mentioned earlier.
Either put in the trailer is the horse will tolerate it, or get a good rain

At one ride, it was so muddy, and nasty in camp, I pulled my trailer mats
out of the trailer, for the horse to stand on. Anything to make them a
little more comfortable.
