Manufacturer: State Line Tack
Model: Turnout Blanket Extra 1200 Denier High Neck
Purchase: i needed a super warm water proof turnout blanket for a senior member of our equine family who believed a barn was for parking the tractor in. i looked at many sites on the internet and felt stateline had many blankets to choose from with sub catagories and price range. i wanted the best for my horse price was secondary. after looking at all available i picked turnout 1200 denier turnout extra. this blankets neck coverage was almost up to his poll. the blanket with neck coverage was all in one no buckles to catch to fence and no openings to fail. the blanket is true to size very well made. it has 360 grams of filling,180 grams of filling in the neck. 41 inch drop. the neck has heavy duty velco closures with back up snap buckles. open buckle front two surcingles and back leg straps. all high quality. for two winters mr blandings has options of going in or out and has chose staying out where ice was on the blanket but he was bone dry. he lays down and rises freely and i have not needed to adjust the blanket at all. i paid 129.99 and it was worth every penny.
Likes: as i said it is very well constructed. excellent velcro and snaps.it is waterproof, every covered inch of this horse remained dry through the wildest of weather. the price was very fair.i am on the third winter it cleaned very well in a giant washer. it is not a bulky blanket the horse moves freely to eat and drink. i never cared about color,but it came in a very nice blue.this blanket covered the entire horse including a tail piece.
Dislikes: the only problem i had with the above blanket is and this is very important...the neck covering or extra is great for thin necked horses. i bought two others because of its grat design and sad to say i put it on my two old fashioned quarter horses and could not even secure the hood or neck part. the blanket was true to size but the neck area needed at least six inches more coverage of material to connect the velco. i finally folded the neck piece down and was disapointed that stateline did not mention neck thickness for a proper fit. if you have a thoroughbred or fined necked horse this is the blanket for you i made the mistake of assuming length is the only measurement to worry about when you order an extended neck blanket...
Quality: this blanket was top of the line. great fittings solid stiching. it has not failed coming the third winter. it washed very well and lined dryed in a sunny day.
Summary: buy this blanket for warmth and keeping your pal dry. do not buy this blanket if you horse has a thick neck...it is to bad they did'nt use a little more material on the part which seperates this blanket from all others. if you buy this blanket and wonder if the velcro will stay secured feed your horse and make him reach down several times to make sure the blankets neck area stays closed.
