Im looking to start a new career in the Oil and Gas industry as a AB seaman, Roustabout or RoughneckI'm a UK resident.?
WTF dude, most on here have no idea what ANY of those are or mean Me personally go for roughneck sounds better for the women :D But seriously - ask some people in those positions their thoughts etc.
I live in the midwest, but have traveled southI would try a mid weight and a light weight blanket on your horseGo to Schneiders Saddlery for a blanket, they have lots of information online, and if you call, they will be able to help youThey are one of the best for arabian equipmentI blanket my arabs here, with mid weight blankets because they are kept inside most of the winter, and it is fairly draft freeWhen they go out, the leave their stable blanket on, its taken off inside, with a cooler thrown on them to cool them down, and then their blanket is put back onMy old horse is double blanketed.
If it were my horse, I'd start putting a blanket on him when you start wanting to wear a jacketUsually 50 degrees or below You can start with a light blanket, then move on to a heavier blanket when it dips down below 40 If he -curls up- (for lack of a better phrase,) when he lays down, that means he is a bit cold, you should make sure he is in a barn at night, and blanket himI hope that helps you : )
I own a pure bred egyptian arab, and I live in germany where it is FREEZING!!! they dont get cold, they are just another horse, from a different place, but I would just go with your normal routine, when I want to bring them in the outside paddock though, when there is snow, i blanket them, or else i will feel bad! But they should be pretty good
If you don't need to keep her coat lighter, there really isn't much need to blanketSometimes an older or underweight horse will need that extra warmth, but a healthy horse that grows a full coat is fine except for the very coldest, windiest daysBreed doesn't make any difference.
