gizmo-i do like that one haha
Ritzieann-yea she owns the horse and they want me to get a blanket because of all the weird weather we have been having she wants him to have one as the one he had is now being used on the baby and none of the others fit him so she asked me to get one for him. He does have a barn type thing so that's why I wasnt worried about getting a super heavey duty one

Yeah. My dad says he glows in the dark! Lol. I would go for the tough one. I didn't want something that was heavy because her has a good winter coat on but I wanted something that would keep him dry mostly. I would just worry about using a sheet because they are thinner and if you get a lot of rain it will soak through.

If you lease this horse & it is boarded at its owners place... I fail to see how it is your responsibility to purchase a blanket for it. It would he one thing if you wanted to, say, for showing or generally keeping the horse clean, but if the horses owner wants it to have a blanket, they should buy it.

Do you pay money to lease this horse & board it at the owners place?

Do not know the particulars of the OP's lease, etc. But if you are full leasing then it is your job to provide for the animal what it needs.

Sure, what it needs. We have established the horse lives in a mild temperature area. It has a shelter to stand out of the elements. The owner wants a blanket because of recent weird weather. Something light even. This is silly. If this weather pattern is not typical, then its temporary. Put the horse inside.

Personally, anyway, especially in a temporary weather pattern, I feel that if I were leasing a horse, its not my requirement to do this. All of. Sudden a sheet is needed? Just because of temporary weather? That is silly.

ritzieann-he has a shelter but if it is raining his pen floods horribly into a pond so when it is raining as much as it has recently we have to move him to a extra pen which simply has a lean to then my boy is not fond of and as cold as it has been lately(we got 8 inches of snow which is EXTREMLY rare we never have more then 2 every 4 yrs) my BO wants him in a blanket. I at the moment cannot remember the whole lease agreement(to early attatched ot late night) but its a partial lease not full but wiht 19 horses my BO wants us to leasers to buy our leases blankets nothin fancy just something to keep them warm and dry.
By no means am I complaining about buying him one I don't mind at all I just don't want to get one that's going to end up being a piece of junk that breaks or something within the first couple uses.

Well, my tough one is still surviving! He loves it today he was mad because I didn't put it on him and it was colder than it has been the last few days and when I put it on him he got all happy, lol. He is such a dork, and I was wrong it is 460 denner I believe but its feels really strong and I here him sometimes run it across the hay trough, which has a corner on it and it still hasn't ripped, very good. And very warm it has gotten very cold her at night especially and I go up and check on him and he is always nice and cozy.

I would stay way from the Tough 1 blanket. I bought one for my mare and I have already had to repair it several times. I think the next time she gets a rip and I have a few $$ to spend then it is going in the trash. As far as weather proofing part I have not had any issues with that.
I would go with the canvas sheet idea, I got one from Stateline Tack pretty cheap and that has held up well. (on the same mare I might add)
