    blanket question

    My new OTTB does not seem to be getting a good winter coat this year. He was pulled off the track last Feb, and was kept blanketed for the remainder of the winter by his previous owner. He has gotten a little bit furrier, but no where near my other boy.
    I need some help trying to figure out what type of blanket to get for him.
    We live in central ohio where it can get down to 0, but generally is in the teens and 20's. He will be going outside, but not in really wet weather.
    Should I be looking at a stable blanket? Med. Weight? Or should I look for more of a turnout style?
    Also, my trainer was talking about some new blanket that is supposed to be awesome. It follows your horse's fur...so that when they puff up to get warmer the blanket moves with them instead of squashing the hair back down. Anyone know who makes this or what it is called?
    Thanks guys!

    Tack of the Day had that blanket on there a couple of weeks ago. I can't remember what it was called. Maybe if you email them they will let you know.

    I would use a turnout blanket myself as it will cut the wind better and if he rolls outside, the wet/mud won't hurt the blanket. If he's not clipped, a medium-weight would be fine, 200-220 gms of insulation.
