However, my mare seems to pee right on it and now the snap is stuck in place and of course the whole nylon strap is stiff and REEKS and I don't even want to touch it with my hand - GAG. But this is a lightweight blanket she'll be wearing all spring to keep her dry from the rain so it comes on and off all week long for riding.
Has this style snap but w/ one end just threaded thru the D ring:
What can I do? Can I replace it with something else? Doesn't seem like I should go without? How about enduring touching it but use a different kind of snap that won't get stuck? Like this one so there no spring or anything to be damaged from the acid:
