Orican Medium Turnout
Model: Orican Medium Turnout
Purchase: I bought this blanket on sale at Horseman's Outlet in Lebanon, NJ in August of 2007. I needed blankets for my new horse (a 15.2h TB) and paid about $140.
Likes: It fits my skinny TB quite nicely. The lining is made of nylon to prevent shoulder rubs. It also repels water and does not get soaked through when he chooses to stand outside in the rain. Design of the T-locks on the surcingles stay in place.
Dislikes: The fabric is supposed to be strong (1200D), ripstop, ballistic nylon. I have a 600D sheet that has held up better than this blanket. My TB's turnout buddy likes to play blanket tag and within the first week he wore it, there was a tear along the neck in the lining. Throughout the first winter, it acquired a few little nicks here and there which weakened the fabric and he now has a huge gash along one side of the blanket that is supposed to wear like iron.
The design of the t locks on the surcingles make fastening them difficult with gloves on.
Quality: You get what you pay for with this blanket. It is of average quality and construction. The fabric is not as strong as the manufacturer claims. OK if your horse is turned out alone or is not with someone who is hard on blankets.
Summary: Alright blanket for a TB-type horse (they will NOT fit a larger, draft cross type). If you decide to go with this one, be warned that it will not hold up for very long (mine gave out halfway through its second winter) with rough play.
Usefulness Rating: 0 out of 5.
