Horse owners, is this okay?

I saw a guy with a horse in a trailor on the freeway tonight. It's about 20 degrees here and the trailor was one of those with all the holes in it. Just curious if it is healthy for the animal.

  • I think the horse will be ok. Remember they used to roam the country untamed ...

    Not a 45-60 mph! Windshield alone becomes arctic.
    I would assume they had the horses blanketed though.

  • He wasn't blanketed? As soon as the weather turned cold we would go to the barn nightly to blanket our horses. Poor guy!

  • As long as the horse has a blanket on I think he will be okay. I know our horses are working on their winter coats.
