Blanket Sizes
Hi everyone, just a few pictures I took yesterday. I went to measure Sage for her blanket for show season that she needs to start wearing before too long. I measured her three times because I couldn't believe the size. She measures out at seventy-eight inches. I knew she was wide but she's bigger than I thought haha

If you blanket your horse, what is their size? What breed of horse? Height?

Anyway, these are just a few head shot pictures of her. See her ugly bumps? Teeth are moving.

I have:
a wide thoroughbred that is 15.2 hh and a size 75
a narrow thoroughbred that is 16 hh and a size 78 (he's pretty long)
a wide, but short bodied appendix that is 15.3 hh and a 78.

My mare is a 16hh Percheron/Cleveland Bay/TB cross. She isn't super tall or really super wide, but she is an 84 blanket, and sometimes I wish I had gotten them in 86 for a little extra space! haha.
