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?!
I wash mine (Schneider's), but only as much as it really needs it. This year that was once during the rainy season and once at the end of it. You don't need to re-waterproof it each time. I did go ahead and re-waterproof with Nikwax this last washing, even though it still seemed to be doing fine; this was my second season using it, and I figure once every two years is a reasonable schedule I suspect they last longer if you don't let it get to the point where the waterproofing has failed before reapplying.ok, thanks for the different clarifications. I tend to have bad luck on buying blankets, maybe I'll try the local tack store so I can at least feel them and see. Also, can the waterproof turnout sheets be washed? Or if they are does a coat of waterproof spray or something need to be put back on them?
