Question Turnout Rug (Blanket) repair

Hey guys,

Of late, my filly has been a rug (blanket) murderer! I've never had a horse that rips its rugs before, and even Red didn't use to, until the past, say, three weeks. She's completely torn a Med weight, and the stuffing has come out, and has put little nicks/punctures in another med and a heavy too.

There is no way I can afford to buy new ones. How easy (if at all) are they to repair. I consider myself pretty nifty with a needle and thread (it's about the only domestic Goddess role I actually excel at!) but I figure normal cotton thread would allow water in, the same with the punctures where the needle enters the fabric.

Is there any kind of glue that works particularly well, or is even designed to repair it. OR a sealant (like mastic, but horse friendly) that I can cover my stitches in?

Or? Am I just going to have to chuck them out and buy her a new one with a higher denier?

Gah! Horses. Are. So. ****. Expensive. It's like they want me to go bankrupt! Hehe

My horse is the same! But he doesn't rip them himself all of his evil friends do.. Aha

Ok so what I use, believe it or not, is dental floss and a needle. That's all you need! Lol Double the dental floss when you put it threw the needle to make it stronger and voila!

The dental floss is water proof and pretty durable, plus horse friendly! It does take time to do if you want it to be a good job. Have fun! ;)

Not sure if you will be able to see this but idk how to put pictures up yet. XD
