Model: Light Weight (100G) Turnout Blanket (View all n/a reviews)
Purchase: I was looking for a reasonably priced ($119.00), light weight (100G) blanket for my half draft in size 84" and this fit the need. I purchased it online from Valley Vet. Valley Vet won't let me do a review of this product on their own site.
Likes: It looks good. It's roomy enough for my half draft. It has two buckles in the front (I'd prefer snaps), which allow adjusting to give her room to put her head down without binding her neck. I mention this, because another blanket company is using a single ring and two snaps which pinched my horse's neck and I returned it.
Dislikes: I don't like the strange, microfiber type lining which shavings like to stick to. I also would prefer a two snap system instead of two buckles. AND, the two straps that are designed to attached from the middle of the blanket, around the hind legs and attach to the rear of the blanket - DON'T FIT. They are TOO SHORT. There's only about 5 inches of adjustment and some elasticity (which I won't rely on due to cutting off the circulation in my horse's legs).
Quality: I've only had it a short time. I used one of the leg straps (since they are too short to use as designed) and I run it under the horse's tail to keep the back of the blanket in place. It seems to be made pretty well, but I don't know how it will hold up in rain or snow.
Summary: I would not buy this blanket again. I'd pay more for a lining that shavings don't stick to. And, for two snaps in the front and longer hind leg straps.
