Horse Blanket Risks
So, today, while I was feeding, my foal and his dam got stuck together by the fasteners on the front of their blankets. His mom is wearing a Weatherbeeta Orican and he's wearing a Weatherbeeta Freestyle. The Orican has caribiner-type clips that attach to D-rings and the clip on her blanket attached to the D-ring on his blanket and they were stuck together front to front. I have never seen this happen before. I would have hated to know what would have happened if I hadn't been there or if Kate (dam) had gotten stuck to one of my other horses. I think my mistake was that the clip was facing out instead of in, but never in a million years would I have thought of that as a risk with wearing blankets. Anyone else have bizarre blanketing stories or accidents?
PS. If this is in the wrong spot, somebody can feel free to move it.
Peace, Love, and Ponies of all shapes and sizes.
