Potential Blanket Problem
I have a boarder who wants her horse's blanket put on at 40 degrees and below which is fine. The problem that arises is that she only has a stable blanket to be applied in the stall.
Obviously her stable blanket isn't going to hold up to the outside, but she doesn't have enough money to buy a turn out blanket. Her horse is already on the hot side and would go insane if left inside. Her horse isn't a show horse by any means so I'm not sure what her plan is.
I do charge for 24 hr stall care unless the weather is bad. ($2 a day extra).
Can anyone suggest a reasonable solution?

try and get a second hand rug, or make one, they are pretty easy to make but you should be able to find a second hand one or one in a bargain bin, they wouldnt be that pricey, i can get second hand ones in ireland from about 20 euro, which is about 18 dollars i think

If she got a light rain sheet (which can be super cheap) she could cover the stable blanket with that...

I only used stable blankets on my first horse, because he was kept inside with bad weather, adn stalled over nite so it wasnt a really problem. The only issue I had was when my horse would roll in puddles, the staff would change his blanket (I had two) and wash the dirty one for me.
I know people who only blanket at night when it gets really cold in the barn and the horse is stalled, it cant move around to keep warm.

There are some very cheap turn-out rugs available online ...

When I was a broke college student somewhere really cold for the first time, my guy ended up wearing a 20 year old turn out rug that my trainer had in storage "just in case" somebody needed it until I was able to buy my own.
Ask around, some people (myself included) end up hoarding horsie stuff for the "just in cases"
