How thick of a blanket should i get?

I am getting a new blanket! Lol my old one has seen better days and needs to be replaced. I live were it gets pretty cold.It has gotten as cold a 4 but it normley stays in the 20/30s. My 8 year old,arab/saddlebred it a little under weight still (when I bought him he was soo skiny and it is takeing forever to put weight on him).So how thick of a blanket should I get?

I'd get at least a medium weight if it were my horse.

I think that what I had last time ( this blanket has been a nice one and I have not had to buy one in ages) But I had that and when it got really cold I had a liner.But thank you!

I find layering best. I'd get a light weight stable sheet and a good mid weight blanket 200-250gm fill and if you can swing it a heavier one 300-350gm fill. Then you have a choice, mild sheet, cool/wet sheet plus mid weight, real cold sheet plus heavy weight
