I bought a BOT mesh sheet for my 7 y.o. TB gelding last week, and now he’s ready to begin wearing overnight in his stall. I’m trying to figure out how to use this thing.
We are in Northern Virginia, so typically it gets down into the low 30s/high 20s overnight. He is stalled overnight but the barn is open for ventilation. Before getting the BOT, he’s been wearing a medium turnout at night (200g).
He is trace clipped and in ideal condition; he tends to run hot, so I am careful not to overblanket him or he sweats.
So how warm is the BOT mesh sheet on its own? I’m afraid that it will be too hot under his medium, but not warm enough on its own. Should I put a no-fill sheet on top? A fleece cooler? Please share your experiences!
