Last year Kona really did a number on his heavy blanket. I deemed it unrepairable. I went on a search for new blankets for him and came across Schneider’s Tack catalog. I’ve seen a few people use these blankets in the barn in the past and they seem to hold up pretty well. So, I thought I’d give them a try! They are very affordable and even come with a warranty. They have a variety of styles and probably my favorite option they offer are the neck cut-outs. There are different neck cut-out fittings depending on the breed of your horse. For instance, a blanket that fits well on a thoroughbred probably isn’t going to fit super well on a little quarter horse.
I’m super excited, because my package came in!
I picked out a light sheet and a heavy blanket with a belly-band. The last time we had a blizzard, I said to myself, “When I buy new blankets they’re going to have belly-bands, by-golly!” The wind and snow would just gust up underneath their blankets, and I felt bad that there was nothing else for me to do for them.
I’m so excited to try them out! I’ll let you know how they hold up.
