I was going to pass, until they marked the boots that I wanted down to 1/2 price! So I added a pair of gloves, and got a free blanket!

Yes blankets have crisscross belly straps and leg straps, tail flaps also. The heavy weights blankets are 400 grams, medium weights are 250 grams fiber fill.

If it's bad enough weather I bring them in barn. If possible I'd rather they be outside. Being they have hay bales out and trough with tank heater.

Good to know I can use stable blankets to layer. Saw some pretty good sales on those and some nice quality blankets.

Yes both horse's were very content comfy eating hay. Were happy to get blankets put on also palomino is a bit of a whimp.

I took loose salt about a 1/4 cup sprinkled some on both bales. Adding salt to feed doesn't work they won't eat the feed if salt is in it.
Am I reading right that you have 400+250 gm blankets on? I'd be pretty worried about them being too warm!

Yes you can layer stable blankets (heck you can layer most things) but I don't see the purpose of buying stable blankets over turnout blankets. If you buy what you mentioned (coolers/liners/heavies) and already have the mediums that's all you need right there.

I always cater to horses that get cold easily. Could be he needs blanketing consistently and the other one doesn't. Or maybe he needs a warmer blanket before the other guy does.

Those are good blankets, the Northwinds, worth considering if you're looking.

Yes they are wearing 400 + 250 gm blankets not to warm I checked them. Its below zero with wind chills right now. By morning wind chills will be 35 to 40 below zero.

A medium weight blanket isn't warm enough when it goes below zero.

Palomino has been in shelter more then outside today, goes an eats hay for a bit. Then back in shelter he goes.

Black gelding has had his head stuck in hay bale since it got put out yesterday. Had to separate the boys black put the pally through a fence this morning. Way to much chasing fighting going on.

Ordered 2 heavy weight turnouts 2 turnout sheets payed a bit more then I planned. Sheets are 1680 denier. blankets are 1200 denier 400 gram fill. Both were on sale.
Wasn't from Dover ,got a better deal from state line tack.
