Heavy horses do wear blankets

Photos by Barry Wallace
Regular visitors to this blogsite will know that I am fond of saying that Thoroughbred and Standardbred horses and ponies need their 'blankies' in the winter, but that the heavy or draft horses are too big and burly for such niceties.   That's silly of course, especially if those big, tired, old horses are beyond toughing-it-out anymore.   The Dog Tales/Horse Haven rescue facility, on the 19th Sideroad, between Dufferin and Bathurst Streets, is home to some of those beasts of burden and if they need a blanket, they get one.
Please comment if you wish.
