Rain+rips in blanket

The alpha ripped our horses blanket in 2 areas on the rump and it’s been raining and cold. Should i switch out the blanket he’s wearing now with a new no ripped ? Blankets are both waterproof

Well, won't really be waterproof when there are rips in it and he'll get soaked where it's ripped. I would change it out. Depending on how big the rips are, those iron on patches work to repair them.

Yea, if you can. I've put ripped rainsheets on before when they were the only option I had, but if you have a perfectly good sheet then swap it out.

Ok I will then. The rips are superficial and the filling is visible but it’s not torn on the backing...I will patch with the jean patches. Thank you so much for the tip❤️ He goes thru blankets like crazy I will patch from now on
