I have that one but the older model which has 300g of fill instead of the 250. Mine is warm and my girl is nice and toasty when it is 24 degrees fahrenheit which is about -4 for you. How cold was it when he was shivering?
But I do love that blanket. Got it washed at the end of last winter and it still looked brand new when I put it on her this year.
It was +5 (41 fahrenheit??), but it was also very damp out that day. He does have a pretty fluffy coat right now, and I guess I can always get another one in a few months that's heavier if he really needs it.
Glad that you liked it, it does look like a nice blanket, and is a good price too. Posted via Mobile Device
Yes, he's in individual turnout, so I won't have to worry about bite marks or mischievous horsies trying to undress him :). So the 1200d would be warmer than the 600d? How does that work exactly? Posted via Mobile Device
Another boarder just suggested I get a fleece blanket, and use it under his rainsheet?? Would something like this work, or is it a big no no? (The rainsheet would come off when he's stalled, and he would just be left in the sheet (liner). What do you guys think? Just trying to explore my options as my budget's quite limited at the moment (dang vet bills :P). Posted via Mobile Device
No the 1200d is not warmer. I was suggesting the medium blanket but in the 600d instead of the 1200d as he is alone so less chance for damage to the blanket so denier isn't as high as an issue.
I have a fleece blanket for under Lizzy's rainsheet and it is a pain in the butt. The sheet slides back so then it gets pooped on and then she gets rubs from it on the withers and chest from the pressure. And that is only left on for a few hours :( so that is why I bought medium weight blankets, safer I feel.
