I am going to buy my daughter's horse a winter blanket while they're all on clearance. I have it narrowed down to a Weatherbeeta and a Kensington, both are the same color (important to a 10 year old girl), both have the same fill, slightly different denier, but the horse is pretty easy on blankets, not turned out with other horses, etc, both have the neck thing that my daughter really wants, and both are $99 (down from $150ish each). Is one really any better than the other? I know at our barn more people have Weatherbeetas, because they are sold at the feed store in town.
The amazing thing is that my daughter settled on forrest green or navy blue, not some crazy printed one. She wants a plain one!
