Re: [RC] Horse Blankets Buyer Beware - Mary Sutliff

You don't say where you live but if the temps are in the 50 - 60 range
(or even down to freezing) you probably could get by easily with just a
rain sheet.  Look for one with a poly mesh lining and at least 1200
denier shell.  Dover has their Riders Turnout Sheets on sale in their
lastest catalog for $85.  Item #6B-Q2427.  I have had one of these for 3
years & it's held up well.  It can be washed & dried in your home
machine if you don't mind the straps banging.  I send it out now and
then to be rewaterproofed.

For a heavier winter blanket I bought the ones from Mary Coleman.  They
are warm, waterproof and inexpensive.  I rarely use them as I don't
blanket my horses unless the weather gets really severe.  Our 5 live
outside & have access to the barn at will.  

I live in Western Washington where we know what real rain is!
