Fleece or Cotton Stable Sheet

I am not sure which one to buy. I like the fleece better and think it would be warmer and I could use it under my turnout if need be but I think it would be harder to keep clean. Then I think a cotton one wouldnt be as warm and it would fit kind of bulky under a turnout but it would be easier to clean. Which one do you all like better?

cotton sheets aren't bulky (IMO) under a turnout

i like them both for different reasons, although i find myself using the fleece one more often than not

I, too, prefer the fleece... But they end up getting very hairy. If you found a very warm cotton sheet, I would certainly buy it, though! (Less hair. I'm not a fan of hairballs, hehe.)

Of course...this is just my opinion.

I actually have the Rambo cotton cooler and I LOVE it!! It definately stays much cleaner than a fleece and I think it keeps Brickens quite warm. When I throw it on him after a ride he is always warm when I take it off. It also keeps him warm when I'm tacking up in the freezing cold. I have never used it for turnout though as he would destroy it so I always use a turnout sheet underneath his midweight for extra warmth.

Fleece are nice but collects everything it touches (hair, shavings, dirt, etc). Cotton isn't bulky at all.
