Weatherbeeta's are the only turnout blankets that my boys haven't shredded. They're good quality and I got mine on sale for $60 a piece.

My boys don't wear blankets, first because I believe if horses were to wear clothing they'd have been born wearing it but instead got a nice fur coat. Second, one horse seems to feel anything the other is wearing ie bareback pad, saddle pad and saddle is fair game to pull on. A blanket would be in shreds in no time.

Yep I agree, most of the time horses don't need them but there are days certain horses of mine will shiver. I don't like that....makes me feel like a bad mommy. So, blankies it is however; none of mine are destructive with blankets so I don't feel like I'm wasting $ on them.

Last year, the pest needed a storm proof blanket for about two days. It doesn't happen often but in early winter we had wind rain/snow and his coat offered inadequate protection. The last time we had this weather was over 10years ago and it lasted only a day. It was an arab and I was able to blanket him with a borders blankets. The weather didn't bother her app, just my desert horse. Any recommendations on a blanket for this type of weather. Apparently he's worn them before and leaves them along, just considers what's on a nother as fair game.

If it's just wet/wind that you need to offer protection from (IE the horse would still be warm if it wasn't wet), I'd do a waterproof sheet.

I love the Amigo sheets, easy on/off, the cut seems to fit almost all horses and if you hunt around during the summer you can get them cheaply.

I found a clearance on 69" Amigo sheets and at $30, bought out the inventory since we have 3 horses at the barn that all use a 69". CO has crazy, bipolar weather and when you go from 80 degrees to -10 degrees in a one day span the horses are miserable without blankies.

I like the Weatherbeeta and the Amigo, they fit well and some of mine are pretty old now
I bought an Equus rug this past winter and really love the fit and make of it so I'll look for more of those and the Shires Equestrian rug I bought is also a nice make and fit
I have several rugs from a company called Schneider Saddlery, also really well made & a good fit but I do find that their sizes can run small and they are also a shade heavier than the same rug in another make.

I really love my Schneider's blankets. I have a cooler/turnout, a nylon sheet, and a winter blanket. They have all held up awesomely. I like the way they fit also.
