Is there a patch I can put on his blanket?

So, we brought home my horse's blanket to wash it and found that he had a very itchy backside, and put a hole in the first layer of his weatherbeeta blanket on the flap. I'm not looking for anything like a replacement, I was just wondering if anyone knew of a patch we could put on it so that it does not rip any more. I looked on weatherbeeta's site and didn't see anything, but I AM oblivious to anything that is right in front of me, so there may well have been one. Should I just look for a piece of gore tex and sew it on, or is there something that is made for horse blankets? Thanks!

I'm not sure if there is a patch, if so they would have to be very strong and sewn with thicker thread. You could go to a blanket repair service and either ask / get it repaired there. I've also seen some blanket repair supplies at tack stores.
Hope that helps =)

Check camping supply sites. There are patches for tents. Some with sticky sides.

Also check sewing and craft supply stores. We use a sticky fabric mender for patches on our horse blankets.

Make sure the blanket is clean, dry and 'warm' - as in not fresh from outside 30 degrees.

I just had 2 repaired. I took them to a canvas place that makes boat covers & boat lift awnings. They matched colors, but not material and it cost me $35 for both. They used a duck cloth type of material that is pretty tough and waterproof.
