  1. Horse Tack, blankets and Equipment Queries
    I measured my pony and he is 38” from the center of his chest to the center of his tail. Well I ordered a 38” blanket and this is what it looks like on him. Not sure what I did wrong here.

    I’ve got an old man gelding whom I’ve never felt the need the blanket. As he’s aging though, I’d like to have a blanket on hand for those just-in-case snowy, rainy, or extra cold nights and I’m looking for some advice. I know people have LOTS of opinions on stalling, etc. during inclement...

    What is the best blanket for a horse that doesn’t grow much of any winter coat but lives in Texas where days can get a little warm? (I would remove the blanket of course during warmer days!!!) Our lowest temp here in central (Waco area) Texas last year was -1 and is expected to be lower this year.

    I’m struggling with a question. To blanket or not to blanket….. it’s about my older Morgan Mare, Ember, she is bony and 18 years old. We live in the mountains of Vermont so weather does get pretty harsh up here. We are also trying to get her to gain weight and muscle. So, should I blanket her or...

    Back again! Wanting to see how others think these stable blankets fit. From Big Dee's, Highland Midweight Stable Blankets size 80. I feel like they fit pretty well, but want to make sure they aren't too small. The surcingles are basically let out as far as they can go and are not elastic, but...

    I just purchased 2 Horze High Neck Turnout Sheets for my horses and I have very little experience with blanketing at all, but I think they're possibly too big? Or could I have them adjusted wrong or something? They seem decent everywhere but the neck which is gaping open. I have no clue lol they...

    Hi! How do I clean a saddle pad? Every time I've cleaned a saddle pad I've just sprayed it off and brushed off the hair with a metal curry comb. And left it out the sun to dry. It that okay? I don't want to ruin my saddle pad.

    I am totally new to Appaloosas - am I correct in considering my new rescue gelding an Appaloosa? Is the a way to tell if he is only Appaloosa or if there is something else? I have no background info on him. What is the exact name for his pattern? He is 4 years old and 14hh, is he likely...

    Looking to buy a waterproof turnout sheet for my horse for rainy days to keep him dry. I have a tough-1 and it's pretty much junk. I had to waterproof it myself and it doesn't do that great of a job also is super thin and could tear easy. Soooo..............what turnout sheets do you like and...

    I am wanting to get my horse a rain or turnout sheet that is waterproof for the rainy season. Does anybody have one that has worked really well for them and is actually waterproof? Or ones that really stink?!

    Wondering if you have used the Abrazo Hug winter blankets? I just bought one for my horse and am not very happy with it. I know it buckles different than a usual blanket but it seems so big and odd. Have any tips or tricks or maybe even just how you adjust or use your blanket would help a...

    My horse grows a pretty thick coat in the winter so I rarely feel the need to blanket him, and he is also kept indoors at all time except for an hour or so turnout. So, I was just wondering what some of you thought about when it is too cold for a horse not to have a blanket on. Just bare...

    Okay, so add another blanketing question to the pile…. :-) <Post in a nutshell: Yearling filly injured and went to vet for four weeks, concerned the fluorescent lights kept her coat from growing, should I blanket her since she is on stall rest right now?> Here is the background and more info…...

    I have a gelding that's on 24/7 turnout. I'm going to buy him some blankets this winter so I don't have to spend as much time grooming the mud off him. I like the idea of belly bands so the girth area stays clean as well. However, I've heard that mud/water/pee gets under the belly band and makes...

    Well, it's that time of year when the blanket comes off and needs to be stored. I'm pondering the best way to do it. The local laundry forbids horse blankets, unfortunately; so I'm wondering -- what's your best practice when it comes to cleaning horse blankets? I'm thinking of laying it out...
