    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!

    I layer with many layers and kept them all the same size. It worked for me to keep them all the same 64"

    I am interested in to what people have to say as I also live in the Northeastern area of PA and just got a TB this summer. He has blankets he came with but I don't want to use them all or not use any of I do not have to.

    I don't have too much advice since I have different blankets (light, med, heavy) but my trainer told me if I could afford it to get a Rambo Duo blanket set. It has a sheet with 100 grams of fill, then you can buy liners between 200 and 400, I think. It's not cheap but it's an option!

    Good luck :)
