My horse ripped his winter turnout blanket that was 1200d but he honestly didn't need it. I only used it when it was snowing hard and it was dropping below 0 degrees.
I was wondering if I could use a 600d turnout sheet and still provid wind resistance and water resistance of about the same value as his last one. It will be used the same as the last one and maybe worn throughout the day/night.
He is on 24hr turnout with a 3sided shelter- Roundbails all day and grain at night. And he isn't body clipped either.
Is there any real difference other than warmth?
Most importantly! Is it safe?
