      Comments about StormShield® V-Free® New Briton Bellyband Turnout Sheet:

      I can't count how much I've spent on winter, spring/fall, and fly sheets that didn't fit. This fits the bill perfectly! Fits great, doesn't shift, waterproof, and sturdy. I'm so happy with these belly band blankets! You must try them on your babies!

        I have a young stud and he wears the blanket 24/7. I'm amazed at how well it has stayed on and the difference it is making in his coat.

            This is a mare that doesn't grow a heavy winter coat. I don't blanket my other mare but this one suffers with no blanket. The breathability kerps her from getting too warm.

                Q:

                I am looking for a spring turnout blanket that will keep my horse dry during the wet spring. Would this be too warm for her? I am more concerned with keeping her dry and not overheating with this on.

                  A:

                  This sheet has no insulation so provides no further warmth, it is simply a raincoat that will keep the horse dry.

              • Q:

                Which blanket thickness should I buy? Most of the time our winter temps range into the 20's-teens at night, but warm up into the 30's during the day, and sometimes higher than that.

                  A:

                  This depends on if your horse has a clipped or full coat. If clipped, a Heavyweight would be a good choice. If in full coat, a Midweight would be great. We recommend layering with an Adjusta-Fit® V-FREE® Nylon Blanket Liner #13031 for those especially cold nights.
