Let's talk blankets!

Here is my situation: Shelter

Now, I haven't got very much to spend, maybe $150.00, $200 max. I LOVE the look of rambo's, but there expensive. Anyone able to recommend something? Links would be great!

I need a blanket that will keep my horse warm over the winter, and also want to hear your opinions (after reading my situation on shelter) about keeping a blanket on all through winter, or just using it sometimes...

I DO NOT like the idea of blanketing, however I also don't like the idea of my horses freezing!

I have this blanket StormShieldŽ CLASSIC EURO Bellyband Turnouts in Euro Style Turnout at Schneider Saddlery in heavy weight for 2 of my 3 horses and will probably be getting one for my third horse as his blanket is getting old...It's a great blanket and I really like it, they also have a lot of other nice reasonably priced blankets on thier site.

All of my horses wear Schneiders blankets. They have held up well and I highly recommend them. They have great customer service too.

Froggy had a Saxon blanket (TSC) last year and while he tried to kill it, it came out with not a mark on it. Rinse right off. It was inexpensive and kept him warm while he was still underweight.

I bought mine off of ebay. This is the seller I bought from: tackmarket.

The blankets were cheap. I think they were like $50-60 a piece including shipping. I just ordered the cheapest ones I could find because I live in a normally mild climate and we got a freak snow storm for the first time since the 80's and the seller was only 2 hours away, so I knew shipping would be fast. I didn't care too much if the blankets lasted as long as they got me through the week. They held up really well though. I think they'll last at least another 3-4 years, if not longer.

One warning, though: I'm not sure if I'm just not good at measuring (this was my first time buying blankets), but it seemed like the blankets ran a little small, so if you order from them be sure to order at least a size or 2 too big).

If you want it to last, make sure you get the 1200 or 1800 denier or whatever the highest number you can find is. The higher the number, the tougher and more water resistant the blanket is.
