    I wouldn't put on a warm winter rug unless you can change it quickly. Jazz will just have her cotton on, and she is in full summer coat as well

    If its just showers, honestly I think he will be fine.
    I was pleasantly surprised last week when one day we had rain, and all Jazz had on was her cotton and she wasn't wet underneath at all.

    He is a horse, let him be a horse. I vote no rugs he will cope fine.

    No rugging is warranted. He is a horse in good healthy nick!

    "Beards" and "whiskas" are not controlled by rugging. I am afraid you just have to keep clipping/trimming as they will always grow back, as will "feathers":(
