Buying a Foal Blanket Advice>>

I'm looking into buying a spring/Winter/Fall blanket for my filly. Currently she's measuring 44" Chest to rear and she's a weanling. I'd like to buy one that would last her a while but is it really worth it when she's going to grow out of it in the next year probably. I'm lookin at a 50" blanket for her:

Tough 1 600 Denier Foal Turnout Blanket - Horse.com

I'm trying to make sure it not sooo big that she'll get caught up in it or that it wont stay on but also have room to grow. Any suggestions?

Another I found later:

Weatherbeeta 600D Pony Turnout Blanket - Horse.com

I've never bought a foal blanket before or anything, but my 'sedate in the pasture' 25 year old mare was blanketed all last winter and she annihilated her 600D blanket on trees, other horses, you name it. Personally I would try to look for at least 1000D on a blanket for a foal. That way it's much more likely to stay intact all winter.

Try to get one that's only 1 or 2 sizes up, when it's too big you'll end up with blanket rubs... Ask me how I know ;)
