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.
