Without a doubt, these 'little' guys are incredibly tough and hardy!!! Don't let their size deceive you
Especially when they grow their 2" thick winter woolies!!!
I love the cartoon from MiniMom...Spot on!!!
I never used to blanket at all (and we get cold nights on Colorado prairie).
But 2 years ago Pete started colic-ing whenever the temp dropped below ~10
Turns out there is a thing called cold induced colic...
So, if the forecasted temp is 0 - 15...I put a light blanket on them both.
If the forecasted temp is below 0, I put their medium heavy blanket on.
And my vet has me give them electrolytes for 1 - 2 days before the storm hits to ensure they are fully hydrated.
(And yes, they have shelter and water at all times)
We've had a good handful of very cold nights now this year...And not a colic in sight!!!
