Cool Horse Blankets

I just measured my horses for their blankets and I'm kind of confused. My mini mare who is only 34" tall came out to be 54" for a blanket?! Is that correct or did I make a mistake? I measure about 2 weeks ago and got a rough estimate of 45", I saw rough because we used a tape measure and she didn't like it all that much and wouldn't stand still. Then I measured my 13.3H pony and got 66" which seems more accurate with his size and all but the mini is puzzling me! Does a 34" mini usually get around a 54" blanket? Really?! Maybe she's more chunky than I thought?

I measured from the middle of their chests to the middle of their tail, around the widest part of their sides as well.

Hmm... well you did it right. The first blanket size does sound wrong to me though - pretty sure a 54" was what my Oldenburg wore her first winter, before she was even a year old and she was a big baby. Probably 13 hands at the time...

I thought so too and she is the one I mostly want to blanket cuz she is 22yrs old! Figures! Well I measured 45" the first time so maybe I'll just go with that size then, I must have made a mistake but I didn't think I did, who knows! My luck is at the bottom of the barrel so doesn't surprise me!
