Blanket Size and Advice needed
Ok, I have a 16.1 QH Gelding, I sold him a few months ago and just bought him back, he is built pretty decent with a good shoulder and good hip to him... I am pretty sure last year He wore a size 78" Landa Sheet.
My question is; I would like to buy blankets, or start looking to buy.
Layering blankets gives you flexability; If I would go this route I would want a light cotton or fleece sheet, a med wght stable blanket, and a light/ni-fill waterproof sheet so I can layer depending on the weather. Should I buy the sheet and stable blanket at 78" and get a bigger 81" sheet to fit over top?
Or is it better/easier to buy one waterproof turnout of each;
No-fill/light sheet, med wght, and a heavy wght?
I would like to blanket to keep the shedding down for showing next year a long with a few other reasons.
My horse will not be clipped.
I live in North East PA.
We get snow and sleet and cold weather but not as bad as some other places
Said horse will be spending winter in a non-heated barn living by himself.
Thanks in advance!
