Evil Blanket

My horse wears two blankets to keep her warm during our NY winter. One blanket is not water proof so it goes on first. The second is water proof and has a "turtle neck".

The only problem is the under blanket appears to be rubbing a bare spot and a section of her mane is missing. Her mane is very long and I do not wish to cut or braid. Any one have advice to save the mane!?

How about one of those Sleazy Lycra Shoulder Guards? It looks like it comes up on the mane...

I have one like the above ^ except it extends up to the jowl like a turtleneck and velcros in place. I bought it on ebay.

If you want to keep her warm and totally protected you can also get sleazies that cover the entire body. We use them for shows to protect but they can be used every day too. Just be sure to get one that has a zip neck as they are much easier to get on/off.

No a sleazie is not waterproof.

Could you scotchguard it(the sleazy)? I used to do that to my blankets and pads... It makes it waterproof...

i don't know how well that would work seeing as how it is so stretchy. But I didn't buy a sleazy with a face because I was afraid of her pasturemates pulling it over her eyes and causing a huge mess. I would be very careful about the chance of that happening.

My horse would have a meltdown if I put that thing on him.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of board, and he'll listen to me any day.
