Unhappy Desperately NEEDED: Winter Blanket!

I'm looking for a winter blanket for my mare. She was supposed to be out on lease until next summer, but the lease has been unexpectedly cut short and I have nothing for her for winter. I need a winter blanket that is:

-76"-78" (give or take, if you have something a tad smaller/bigger, let me know)
-Doesn't have to be waterproof. I have a waterproof sheet I could put over the top. Just needs to be warm.
-$60 or less. If you have something that's more expensive, still let me know about it. This is just my basic guideline. I'd pay more for a real nice blanket, etc.
-Prefer something with a neck cover, but it doesn't have to have one.

Nothing else really matters like color or anything. I'm desperate, guys.

The online tack stores are having sales right now. You should be able to find something relatively inexpensive in the size you're looking for.

I may have something my Dear hanging around out at the barn - let me go through my stuff and I will let you know. Nelson is a 78" - and I have quite a collection.

I'll be heading out today around 4:00pm my time, let me go through and I'll let you know later on.

Thanks, MIE! Ti is a 78" as well, so if you had something, that would be perfect!

I have two heavy canvas type winter coats with heavy duty buckles. Size 80 One red and black almost new and the other is purple and black size 80. Let me know if you are interested. I would say $60 is fine if you pay shipping. I was getting ready to list them on ebay. I am going to try here first.

I've got this one for sale. It's a 78, but fits more like a 76. I think it's 200 grams of fill. Not for extreme cold, but good for 30 or so. I'm asking $50 for it. No tears that I'm aware of. It's a Toughrider.
