But, Do Horses Prefer Icelandic or Argyle?

Researchers in Norway proved horses have a lot of horse sense when it comes to wearing sweateauws. A recent study showed how horses choose to wear a sweateauw or not depending on the weather. One researcher said, “Many owners have no clue whether their horses need rugs and blankets”, and may we suggest, a nice cup of hot cocoa to go with it.

“Found this lovely story about how Norwegian researchers let the horses choose if they want to be inside or outside in different weathers, and if they want to wear sweaters or not! They choose a symbol for cover on or off. They want it on if it is cold and rainy, and off as it gets warmer.” -Devoted fan, Reidun K. Original story in Norwegian via NRK, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation.
