    Check this Winter Blanket Out :]

    Ok, so I ordered this blanket for my horse.

    Rider's International Turnout Horse Blanket - Dover Saddlery.

    340 polly fill****

    Do you think it will be to heavy? I'm hoping not, cause I don't like returning things. Take into mind I live in Minnesota and it rarely is about 20 degrees December-March/April

    Where do you live? That's the same thickness I use on my horses and we get very mild winters really because we live in the tropics. Its perfect for the weather here

    I don't think it would be too heavy, but how thick is his coat? I have a pony with a fairly thick coat and his blanket is 240. It only gets about 10-20 F here at the coldest (maybe a little colder with the wind chill?). It's never made him remotely sweaty, but he always seems pretty warm under it. I'd be more concerned about the 640 d outer layer. I think anything under 1000 d rips fairly easily.

    Well at least I didn't order something TO heavy. My horse actually has a REALLY thin coat, and rarely gets a "heavy coat" for the winter, because he's constantly groomed.
