I need to find a blanket for my guy to wear this winter (will probably start blanketing him very soon as its getting chilly). He's a touch underweight at the moment, and don't want him shivering off all his calories- please no comments on him being underweight, it cannot be helped :).
My problem, is that I've never blanketed before, and I am confused by all the different styles, fill types, etc. I have no idea what to even look for. Right now it's getting around 0 C at night, and up to 10 during the day. During winter, it can get as cold as -40 (horses usually stay inside after -25 though). He seems to be growing a pretty decent winter coat at the moment, but I think he's going to need a bit of extra help this year.
What type of blanket should I be looking for? I've checked online, and see things that say # denier outer shell, # nylon filling, # grams polyfill, etc etc etc... But I have no idea what it means! Very confusing!
If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be much appreciated.
