Blanket Rub On Shoulder!
So Dallas really needs a heavy blanket in the winter, I'm north and he has very little winter coat. Problem is it rubs his shoulders to there is a patch on each shoulder about the a little bigger than quarter that is littler with shorter hair. I'm rubbing show sheen on it now that I have notice it has begun rubbing to try to decrease rubbing. I need him to look good for shows. Any advice to grow the hair back quicker or stop the rubbing?
I had the same problem I use the jammies shoulder guard and have never had that problem again!
Same as above, get your pony a bra, and he'll no longer suffer from blanket rubs. =]
Also, you can get a different blanket that fits better. If the blanket is rubbing, it's usually because of the fit. It won't kill him to stay in what he has though, just a thought.
In the meantime, you can use MTG on the rubbed parts to help the hair grow.
Okay thanks for the great advice! He has a slightly lighter blanket that doesn't rub and I'll try to get him shoulder guard. I have some MTG I'll put on the rubs.
Hi, I live in the UK and we use a neck protector, it's like a sash, that goes under rugs to stop rubbing, not sure if you can buy it over there. My mum used to sow sheepskin on the inside of the rug and keep moving forward, night and morning, hope this helps maree:grin:
All my horses have either shoulder guards or full body sleezys. Keep then from getting blanket rubs.
Bossy Bibs are awesome!
Have to be ordered from the UK, but soooo worth it. Check 'em out:

hey sorry to hijack the thread, but what if jammies make it worse? Uma got blanket rubs and I put on some jammies and now they are worse!
Was going to ask the same exact thing. I have this issue to.
My pony has the same problem. We use a shoulder guard. But at my barn we call them Wonder Bras(: it helps a lot.
