Gypsygirl thanks for the EBay
tip! I checked it today and there was one size 69" sheet for sale, new, red, ending today and I won it for $45 + $15 shipping! Lots cheaper than the tack stores!
So I guess the boys will be in matching red (red has always been my color anyway) and the mare in blue!
We'll have to mark the red ones to tell them apart! Dreamer's is a size 76".
Sunny, I think the Kool Koat sheets are mostly solid, at least they are on the back. It is way too hot for a solid sheet down here except maybe November thru February. I tried a solid, white sheet once and my chestnut was dripping within minutes. I couldn't leave it on for even an hour. Waste of money.
Jumperforjoy, I don't know about the big D sheets, but WeatherBetta came out with a nice sheet like the Kensingtons in a cream color which I ordered for Chivas first. It was way, way, too big in a 72", bigger then the Kensington 72". It was also quite heavy, but nice and came with a detachable neck cover. I really liked it, but way too big.
With WeatherBetta products it seems like the small sizes run large, but when you get up to the larger sizes, they fit right. My draft cross wore an 80" in WeatherBetta, 81" Kensington.
One other thing, the Tough 1 lightweight sheets are worthless for rain. My horses got soaked plus sweat like crazy under them. They now say "not for use in hot climates" on the package. Cheap & useless product, IMO.
I bought the Saxon by WeatherBetta lightweight sheet and it works great! No sweating/dry as a bone underneath even in heavy rain. I highly recommend these for good, low cost rain & wind protection. I use them when it is 50 to 32 degrees. Once it drops below 32, they wear the 200 wt blankets.
