Answer:

I'll usually put a sheet on when it gets into the low 60'sThen, when the weather drops below 40, or is around 40, I'll put the blanket onMy horse is stalled all winter, except for when I occasionally turn him out for a run, or ride him, which I do a lotIn my opinion, if the horse is outside, when it is cold or windy (below 45 and windy is a good temp.) you should blanket himOutside they are more exposed to the elements and the sometimes harsh weatheralso, I don't like it when my horses body becomes wet, either with sweat, rain, or snow, and then he needs to sit without a blanketEspecially when it is below freezing and the moisture could freeze on his bodyWhoever told you not until it is below zero outside or never is crazyAlthough horses grow thick winter coats to keep themselves warm, they have adapted to the enmities that humans provide for them, and are not as suited for the cold weather as wild horses, or as they used to beSince people have been blanketing horses for hundreds of years, they have begun to grow thinner, less protective winter coatsJust like how horses' hooves have adapted and are no longer as strong as they used to be without shoes, horses' coats have changedI would say that after it hits 40 a few times, you should begin to leave it onIf there is a day that you know is going to be warmer, take the coat off, but you want to keep your horses safe so trust your own judgmentGood luck and do what you think is best! Happy riding!
I live in Birmingham England and i put my horses rugs on when i have my coat and wooly hat onWhen im cold they must be tooDid u know that horses in the winter lose 60% of their body heat and weight trying to keep warm so financially its very productiveI have a 22 year old Thoroughbred he is 17.2 hh and loses loads of weight during our winter so when its freezing he has a 400 gram new zealand rug on with a neck cover when he is out in the field, and he is stabled at night(What a nightmare that is as he is filthy in the stable) When he is in at night he has 2 stable rugs on when the temperature drops to below freezingHorses hate rain, wind but not an icy cold still morning with snow as the elements of nature aren't so harshThe best advice i can give is see how u feel urself and at night if its cold would u be happy outside with no clothes on? Breed is important as our Shetlands, Welsh Mountain ponies thrive in bitter temperatures as they are native and it is inbred into them but many breeds can't cope.
I use a medium weight blanket on my pastured anglo arabHe grows a decent winter coat, but not enough to withstand the coldest daysHe gets his blanket when it is dry and under 32 degrees or if it is about 40 and wet or windyIn early winter he also gets blanketed when he is shivering if the temp is warmer as he is still growing his coat but we wait till he shivers as I want his winter coat to be as heavy as possible.
Im in Wisconsin too, so I know how ya feel D!! I put my blanket on my horse when it gets past 35 degrees, but thats only because my horse gets cold very easilyBelow zero is much to cold, so I say when it gets around to 35 degrees, which is below freezinggets ready for winter in Wisconsin /
