I measure from the center of the chest to the center of the tail.

Most online sites for blankets will tell you how to measure for their blankets, but in general, it's middle of chest to middle of tail. Sometimes middle of chest to the point of buttock.

I prefer a high neck as opposed to standard to prevent wither rubbing.

Also, I find Weatherbetas run big. My favorite is Rambo. =]

A 72 for a perch cross?! Yikes! My paint wears a 78-80. O_o

Well, yeah...its actually pretty funny, he is percheron/quarter horse,..ive had him since he was 6months old, and up untill last year he was pretty small, same size as my quarter horse (16.2)...i was compliaing allll the time because I wanted him to be a big boy..he shot up last winter, and my first thought was "YAYYYY he's a big boy like he should beee!!"...then it was "SHIIITTTT I need a new blanet/bridle/halter" (cuz of course he has a draft head...hes kinda akward, lol.

Haha. That is why I won't buy my filly a blanket until she is at least 4. But even then, she's been doing fine without one.

The other posters are right - middle of chest to middle of tail. And 72" isn't extremely huge for a yearling, that's what my Oldenburg/TB yearling filly is in this winter ;)
