How does a winter blanket help my mini shetland?
A winter blanket protects your mini shetland against cold and cold-related ailments. Cold is not pleasant for anyone. As a human you don't go outside in winter without a hat, gloves, mittens and jacket, so you shouldn't do that to your shetland. Most horses have a warm, waterproof and insulating coat. They do not need a winter coat, but many miniature horses, ponies and shetland ponies are shaved, so a coat is often necessary. If your shetland is cold, it also plays into the risk of diseases and infections.
