Their coats stand up and look dull, sometimes they will hunch against the cold (or actually shiver)
My mares and foal are out and have been all summer, but now they are at the gate asking to come in despite having plenty of grass and decent hedge shelter - the foal is clearly cold by teatime and they are glad to get inside
Their coats stand up, in order to keep them warm, doesn't mean they are cold. When the coat is up, it is doing its job
Well I'm sure the same applies when the hairs on my arms stand up - and frankly when that happens I'm COLD
BUT you are not a horse, you dont have a full, thick coat, nor is it anywhere near the same and this is why their are so, so many problems with ponies, because they are humanised so much how on earth do you think they manage when not domesticated? their coats are there, to do a JOB! not like your arm hairs which over many years have become non effective, due to evolution ;)!
Well done coldcold for asking a question that others may think is basic knowledge, I hope you do go on to extend your knowledge base and then get your own horse. The majority of rubbish owners are the ones who don't ask for help in case it makes them look stupid, we all gained our horse management skills at sometime and I'm sure the majority of us did it the hard way by watching and asking! Some of the biggest idiots I know have loads of knowledge but can't put it in to practice, a lot of horse ownership is common sense and knowing your horse.
Henerwee: I had a rescue pony that was severly underweight and I fed him Allen and Page fast fibre, Dengie Alfa A oil and top spec comprehensive balancer.......fed him 3 x a day as well as adlib hay and he put the condition on really well.
