Hi everyone! I currently have a weatherbeeta orican turnout sheet and heavy blanket for my little pony. Every year I wash the blankets, and I suppose they shrink. Now the blankets are both too small on my little man and rub him badly. Since I have to lease him out to another in about a month, I didn't want to get him anything expensive. By the way, he has a fuzzy winter coat, but we live in New York and it's been like 20 degrees or less. lol Oh, and he lives in a barn, but does get turned out part of the day.

Should I just get him one heavy turnout? Or should I get him a stable blanket? The stable blankets are very nice looking and affordable, but would they keep my buddy warm?

What's your opinion?

Here is My Man:

I would go with a turnout sheet and then layer that with a stable blanket on colder nights/days. Here is an example of what I was thinking...

SmartPak Deluxe Pony Blanket Set
Horseware Amigo Pony Light Turnout and Light Weight Turnout Horse Blankets | EQUESTRIAN COLLECTIONS.COM

It comes with a turnout sheet that you can layer with either the stable sheet or blanket or both! SmartPak's blankets are really nice and the price is really great for all those blankets. You could also build your own set of blankets (turnout sheet, midweight or heavy stable blanket, and fleece liner/stable sheet), which is what I like to do. If you want to build your own set then let me know and I'd love to help you out. Just let me know what size your pony is and what colors you would like.

By the way your pony is super adorable!!

I like Dover Saddlery blankets, the northwind blanket. They have a lightweight, a midweight, and a heavy weight. The best thing is that you get a 2 year warrenty on them. If you get any rips within 2years you can return them and get a brand new one. No problems!!

I agree. I have their lightweight Northwind turn out blanket. A higher denier and well made. Just hang onto your receipt in case you experience a rip/tear....you can call Dover and ship it back for a new blanket.
