Re: [RC] [RC] best turnout blanket for arabians? - Laurie Durgin

Might try a Weatherbetta(?)they fit my arab and yearling half -arab well. I have a Big D that fits Rascal great, but he is only a 69.(Someone told me thay were made to fit quarter horses build.)The nylon (slick)linings help prevent rubs better than any other fabric.(I had to add some nylon after the fact to my Wilson on one horse , along with darts to make it fit her neck). Laurie and Rascal

Does anyone have some good advice on fitting blankets for Arabians? I have two blankets both are the same size 74 one an old Simco that is about three inches too small and a Big D that is too big in the chest but fits his body well. It slides back behind his withers and is making a nasty sore there. I need a medium weight blanket for the Midwest weather in Central Illinois. He is pretty good with blankets but has never worn one for longer than a few days. Thanks for any help on the subject! He is about 14.2 and fairly short backed.
