Hi. I'm trying to find a fairly cheap waterproof turnout blanket for Dancer. He does go out in the field with 2 other horses (including a punky mare) and there is only trees for shelter. He comes in at night. I really don't have a lot to spend but I don't want to get something that gets chewed up right away either.
I was wondering if this blanket is any good. According to the reviews its not but I don't always believe those.:
This is a case where you do get what you pay for. It's the same as buying bed sheets with a low thread thickness (denier), the lower the number the less quality
I don't blanket my horses unless the wind's blowing up a wind chill, it's raining or sleeting and there's no sun. I have various models of Weatherbeeta's, all 1200 denier. So far they're doing their job
I am personally a huge fan of Weaterbeetas. I have one that I have had for years that I have put on just about every horse. It has survived active stallions, PITA mares, and now is surviving a foal constantly tugging on mom's blanket. I just got my 5 mo cold a weatherbeeta and it is just as nice.
They run a little more than the other blankets but in my opinion are totally worth it.
