I know that, like human clothes, horse "clothes" sizes tend to run a bit different by brand. My boy has an 81" blanket that he came with, and it hangs off his hind-end, and because of the pressure that exerts, when he wore it, it rubbed his fur on his chest.
I've never had to fit a blanket until this horse... all of my blankets have been used, and I just "eyeballed" the fit on the horse it came from (good visualizing capacity, I guess).
So, I need help: Please share with me your blanket experiences, and which brands tend to run "true to size", "large", or "small". Thank you!!!
Also - my horse, a Saddlebred, is tall and lanky - narrow chest, long neck, etc... any suggestions based on this? I guess I'm just considering how much rubbing will happen simply because he wouldn't fill out the sides of his blanket, haha. My other horse is a large, hefty quarter-horse and fitting a blanket on him isn't a problem, haha.
