Question Does this blankie fit?

I can't tell. It's a 74 and he measured 73. It's either really long or he has short legs. Opinions please? thanks.

I am no expert, but from what I can see it looks like it fits well around the chest and sits nicely infront of the wither and doesnt look like it will slip back behind wither. It does look a little long, as in goes a bit further over his rump than usual, but I dont necessarily find that a bad thing if the rest of the rug fits well. As for length down his legs, again it looks a little long, but not ridiculously so. If this is a rug you've bought, I'd be quite happy to use it, but if it is one you are just trying for size, you probably could go a fraction smaller.
Maybe others might think differently though :)

I think it looks too tight on his shoulder he's going to be constricted moving around. It may not be the size that is incorrect it just might be the style of blanket. I've noticed that the cheaper blankets just don't seem to fit as well as the more expensive ones

It's too long, too low, and a funky fit for your horse. I've seen worse, but I personally wouldn't keep it unlessi really had to.

It's too tight round his shoulders, and will rub. Try a different brand to solve that. Lengthwise it's okay.

Get up, get going, seize the day. Enjoy the sunshine, the rain, cloudy days, snowstorms, and thunder. Getting on your horse is always worth the effort.

Too tight in the shoulders. Gonna cause rubs. Look for brands with extra shoulder gussets. Otherwise a good fit.

You just have to see your don't have to like it.
