This is more about layering, then it is about blanketing...
I don't deal with blanketing often because only one horse has one, and it's a heavy weight with a neck cover so I assume it does the job. However, with the temperatures falling below zero (EEK.) I wanted to ask something maybe quite silly!
I have a felt/velor cooler from Rambo that's really warm; it's to throw on the horse not to pull the moisture off him, but to trap it so he doesn't cool off too fast in really cold temperatures. It has one neck buckle, a belly buckle, and one behind the tail.
He's wearing a amigo turnout now... I was wondering if it would be safe to throw this under? Amigos/rambos don't do the 'leg straps', but they DO usually have two belly straps.
Just wondering if anyone's tried this with success! He's a really laid back horse, so I'm not really worried about him running around and dislodging it terribly. (In two years of wearing blankets, I've never had to go outside to fix one. ;) )
