Thinking of warmer days...

Pijt enjoys his blanket during the frigid cold, especially now that he's getting so much older. Below is a 'no-blanky' dressage show photo.

Thanks for the nice compliment! The show photo was from about 8 years ago. The winter pic is recent. Pijt is now 21 and semi-retired. We mostly enjoy the trails and goofing off now. He has the best personality and is my buddy. =0)

He doesn't look his age! I bet he likes his blanket with all the snow. Ours have been turned out the last 6 weeks, no blankets but plenty of hair. Might have to put them up in the barn as it's to be in the single digits by Thursday night. It usually doesn't get that cold here in the south.

Thanks Gail! I just started blanketing Pijt the past few days. He's always had a thinner coat on him than the 2 Fjordhorses. They have super thick hair & aren't blanketed. Even though they all come into the barn at night, it makes me feel better to blanket the old fella when it gets this cold. It's about 10 below right now, with the wind. As the days go by and it gets above freezing, I'll take Pijt's blanket off again. These guys have lots of hay to munch on overnight too. =0)
