Booker seems to really want to come out of his winter digs in my tack room and get out into his separate pasture area, which is a ways away from the barn. We are in the SF East Bay. The weather this week is in the 80's daytime and 50s overnight. Do you think it's okay to bring him out now? Thanks.

Hmm ... He’s around 80 lb. Yours goes out in the snow!?!?!?! Booker has a heated “pig blanket” in his winter digs but not in his outdoors shed. No power there. Maybe I could find a way to rig an extension cord to it and bring his pig blanket out there. Of course it would have to be done so that it would not be hazardous to him. I’ll try to show his outdoor shed below.

Yes, the pig blanket would be good. I have a lane heat mat for dexter and a ceramic heat emitter set in a thermostat to 70-75. It keeps him plenty warm. Your temperatures are not too cold at night.
