Insulation by Mother Nature


Mother Nature is pretty good at what she does. Think about the winter coat of the horse. When snow is piled up on their back, only a little over an inch underneath it the horse's body temperature is over 100 degrees! Turnout blankets crush the loft out of the natural coat and your horse may actually be *colder* while wearing one. These dogs are not so different. Their natural body temperature is 101.5 degrees.
