Explanation:
Wool coolers son mantas de lana que ponen en los caballos despues de una carrera para que no se refrián. Ver el dibujo etc en la pagina abajo. Lo que no entiendo es que tienen que ver con la limpeza del caballo. Hay sabanas que se usan, no para limpiar el caballo pero para mantenerle limpio de la noche hasta la mañana de un gran día.

Sheets are not useful for keeping horses warm, although terry-cloth sheets can help to dry a horse after a bath, and polarfleece sheets or coolers can help to keep a damp horse from cooling down too quickly after working. Sheets are very helpful if you are trying to keep a horse clean, say between the bath on one day and the show the next morning. ;-)

The reason sheets aren't useful for warmth is that horses grow coats for that purpose, and the way a horse's hair coat keeps in warmth is by standing up ("fluffing up" like a bird's feathers) and holding warm air next to the horse's body. If you lay a horse's coat flat, by lots of brushing or by covering it with a sheet, you take away that insulating "air space", so if you're going to reduce the horse's natural protection, you'd better use a blanket instead of a sheet. Otherwise, the horse may be colder than he would have been if you'd left him alone to fluff up his own winter coat!
