    Blanket Brands for Shorties?

    My mare, Molly, is a 14.2hh mutt, and I'm having an awful time fitting her into a turnout! I've cycled through just about everything our small local tack shops have available and will probably need to order online.
    My trouble is that she's got a thin frame like an Arabian and high withers, but short legs like a stock horse. Stock horse-sized blankets are the right length on the "skirt" but are too wide in the shoulders and drape off of her. Standard blankets are perfect on the shoulders and she fits into a 75" like a dream, but they hang to her knees and I'm worried she's going to injure herself in one of her many, many daily rolls.
    Anyone with similar troubles find a blanket brand that works better than others? It's gotten cold her much more quickly than expected and I really need to get a blanket, like, yesterday, so I can't spend forever sending blankets back and forth. :(
