Purchase: Equus Now in Columbus, OH for ~$70-80

Likes: I bought this for a rescue colt I had; I wanted something relatively cheap because I was expecting him to grow out of it relatively quickly. It was the best blanket fit I'd found for him (other blankets would be too lose in the neck or the leg straps wouldn't tighten enough - he was ridiculously tiny for 15.3hh as he was about 300lbs underweight) and he didn't mummify himself in it during any of his casting episodes. The blanket held up to those casting episodes and he wore it 24/7 for a month or two - once washed, it looked like it did when I pulled it off the rack. It holds up better than you'd expect from 600d.

Dislikes: Really, there wasn't anything I didn't like. More color options?

Quality: It's 600d with 180g fill. Like I said, it held up far better than you'd expect from 600d. My colt was always dry and toasty, but never hot or anywhere near sweaty.

Summary: Great blanket; I sold it because it wouldn't fit him anymore nor my other horse. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one. I've since bought another Shires blanket and am thrilled with the quality.
