Thanks for the info. Yeah, my coolers are all probably too big (hey, I always find great deals on clearance/left-over 84s...my horse is an 81). I guess I'll just keep folding it up over his croup until I splurge and get one that fits properly. Two of mine have cross belly surcingles, so I don't have the problem of it sliding to one side.
It's funny how some of the tail cords are fancily braided yet they're just made to go under the tail and get poopy!
