·         Horses Turned Outside without Shelter - Turnout Sheet and Blanket materials are waterproof and designed to keep your horse dry, however if your horse is turned out in a field without a run in shed or shelter during prolonged rain or heavy downpours your horse may still get wet especially in the neck and tail areas.

 

When using a blanket or sheet it is critical to monitor the fluctuating climate and temperatures even with a blanket that is waterproof and breathable. The wicking properties of a breathable blanket are designed to wick away normal body heat, when a blanket is too heavy the heat and moisture cannot be wicked away fast enough causing your horse to sweat. The temperature and the length of your horse’s coat will determine what weight of blanket you should use. For this reason, most people who choose to blanket horses have several articles of horse clothing that offer varying levels of warmth.

 

When selecting a blanket ensure to take into account your horse’s behavior, environment or other horses that may be turned out with your horse. The lower the denier number the less strength the material has. 420 Denier and 600 Denier are not recommended for horses that bite, chew or rub on blankets or for horses turned out with a companion or in a group. Always ensure your horse’s blanket is properly fitted and all straps are adjusted correctly, if a blanket is too tight or too loose, straps may break and material may tear.  For younger horses or horses turned out with a companion or in groups, it is recommended to purchase 1200 Denier or 1680 Denier material as these are stronger materials and are less likely to tear. Certain types of fencing such as barbwire or foreign objects such as nails will easily tear any blanket no matter what the Denier; always inspect the area in which your horse is kept to remove any nails or jagged fencing that may cause damage. There are no horse blankets that are guaranteed to not rip or tear.

I purchased for a yearling pony. My daughter had purchased one previously for her yearling TB, and it fit and looked wonderful. The adjustable size is great for young animals.

Are the chest straps/belly band buckled/clipped or Velcro? I am buying this for my mini-donks, but the goats in the herd take of their blankets if they are secured with Velcro.
CAMI M on Dec 27, 2015
Best Answer: Sorry! I was looking at the wrong blanket. It is all Velcro but it is double velcroed so you secure one flap and then there is a second flap that goes over it. It is very secure but I know goats are mischievous. I also have the Weatherbeeta 1200D foal rug (size 45) which is like a normal horse blanket (the one I described before) and has no Velcro.

Can leg straps be used on this blanket?
Kristine D on Feb 19, 2015
Best Answer: Not in its current condition. I have had to make a few adjustments that were easy and fast with a sewing machine. ! I added a large Velcro strip to the outside of the belly flap and the other piece of it to the center of the back so when you are taking the blanket off the first few weeks the large belly flap doesn't have to hang down and freak your pony/foal! And I hooked leg straps to the eyelet of the tail strap and measured around under the leg and added an eyelet on the inside to attach them too! I used leg straps from an old blanket and now have the perfect pony/ foal blanket ! Great quality blanket and great price just needs a few adjustments for new ones and spooky ponys!

What is the proper way to deal with the tail flap strap with a filly? The strap looks like it will get completely soiled.
A shopper on Mar 19, 2015
Best Answer: My colt is very active, running and rearing and I did not attach it. The blanket stayed with no problems. The design of the blanket helps keep it secure enough without having to use the tail flap strap.
