Red face Horse Blanket measuring??

Okay so I just measured both my horses for a blanket. Scout is 71" so I was going to get him a 72" but Halo is 69", would it be okay if I got her a 72" also? This is the blanket I am getting them, Schneider Saddlery and they only carry sizes 66, 69, 72, 75, 78, 81, 84, 87 in this particular blanket. Now mind you, she is only 2 1/2, so if I got her a 69" wouldn't she grow out of it really quickly?? Would it be so bad if I did just get her a 72"??

Also, have any of you ever used this particular type of blanket?? Thanks in advance.

She will drown in the 72 until she grows a bit more, I would be careful ordering too big, straps will hang lower and it will hit lower on her legs which may cause problems, I would maybe consider a different brand of blanket that you can get in a 70 or even a 71

I don't know if you want suggestions for blankets but I got Lacey a WeatherBeeta Landa Freestyle Medium weight blanket and it seems really nice. I haven't used it extensively yet but the construction of it seems really high quality and it comes in a 69 (Lacey is a 68 so I ended up getting a 69). And it comes in lots of cute colors.

How much was hers?? With Christmas coming AND 7 birthdays this month, lol, I am pressed for money not to mention our truck broke down and we have already put in $5,000 into it, lol, which is why I was going with this brand from this store, they seemed VERY well priced for being 1200D. I actually just got done reading the reviews and I have not read one bad thing about them and apparently they are very sturdy. The only thing it mentioned was that they do run smaller, usually by an inch or 2 I am guessing just from the reviews. If that is the case I wonder if a 72" would be good for Halo, hmm.... I guess the only way to find out is order and if it doesn't fit then just send it back for the right size, idk, grrrr... Thanks though Wallaby, I will look at that brand.

I believe I paid about $80 ish plus shipping. But it was on clearance or some such thing so I don't know if you can find it for that price again. I got it from Equestrian Collections...
Only issue you might have is that, at least the one I got, was only 600 or 800D which works for me since Lacey and her buddies are easy on blankets but you have youngsters. =P

Getting one and sending it back if it doesn't fit is probably a good idea. If you do decide to do that I'd suggest making sure the site's return policy allows for you to try it on. Lacey's blanket came with a sheet that said it was non-returnable after it touched the world at all and I had no idea that that was the case until I got it. Thankfully it fit perfectly. But watch out! =)

Well I just emailed them to find out because I am not sure if they are warrantied because I think they are a closeout special or something. I asked if it was okay to send it back if I needed a different size because I know some places will let you if you just fit it on your horse over a sheet or something that way you don't get hair on it. Man, I do need to hurry and get some though because the rain is coming and we are still in the process of building their shelter. :(

I highly doubt she'd be drowning in a blanket 3" longer than what she measures for. 3" isn't that much. If she's 2 1/2 she's undoubtedly going to grow, and if you don't want to end up going out and buying a new blanket I think the 72" would be just fine, IMO.

I'm ordering that same blanket for my mare, I already have the neck cover and it super nice. It's not on close out, if it was it'd be in the closeout section. You can definitely return it if you need to, Schneiders is great about that (I've ordered tons of blankets from them, they just put a paper in with the blanket saying try it on over another sheet to make sure it all fits, if it doesn't you can return it).

Thank you so very much, I will definitely be ordering from them then. :)
