Comments about StormShield® VTEK® Evergreen Turnout Sheet:

I have a 16.3 QH Appendix takes size 82-84, and the V-Tek system with the pressure free wither shape is the only sheet style I've found that he likes - all other styles he will throw his head and tell me that it's not as comfortable. Plus it stays in place, and covers him completely!

      Comments about StormShield® VTEK® Evergreen Turnout Sheet:

      This sheet is perfect for transitioning from winter blanket to early Spring. My mare a TB/Draft cross and wears this from late March to early Spring.I live in the North East. It fits perfect, stays dry and breathes. She has 24/7 turn out with access to her own stall but prefers to stay outside even when raining and she is always warm and dry! The fit is perfect size 81 and stays in place rolling and galloping about in her fields. I have peace of mind and no worries with this perfect sheet

      Delivery etc. was shortly after I placed the order.

      Comments about StormShield® VTEK® Evergreen Turnout Blanket - Midweight:

      I purchased this blanket as a medium-weight layer for my very beefy Thoroughbred. He already has a heavyweight VTEK, and this one fits just as nicely. It has held up to his shenanigans, and kept him warm on the cold spring days. I wish it came in a different color, but oh well. Would purchase again!

      Service and delivery comments:

      Delivery was prompt and blanket arrived in new condition ready to be used!

      • StormShield® VTEK® Evergreen Turnout Sheet

        Q:

        Would this sheet work well for my friesian? Most sheets cut her at the withers and rub in her shoulders. If this sheet doesn't work well what do you recommend ? I tried the 1,200 d high neck sheet on her and I didn't love it so I'm looking for something better for next season.
        Asked on 2/26/2017 by Kelly from NJ

          Hi, Kelly,
          I have an Andalusian mare with very high withers. This turnout has worked well for her, but make sure you really get the right size. It's worth measuring before you actually buy it -- I found that particularly in the winter, my horse get a bit plumper than in the rest of the year, so allow for that by measuring her for the season you will purchase this.
          Good luck!

          I love the Vtek, it doesn't rub on the withers/mane and fits my high withered race-bred QH beautifully. I will only purchase Vtek blankets and sheets for him   Robin

        • A:

          I have had the StormShield VTEK Turnout sheets on my Friesian mare for 3 years. She is quite comfortable, and the withers are entirely free of rubs or sore places. No shoulder rubs at all. We are both happy!

          A:

          This sheet would work for a friesian. Since this sheet comes up higher on the neck it would help with the wither rubs. Plus it will give her more room in the shoulders which will help with the rubbing there as well. If you have any more questions about fit. The best way to get answer is to call into customer service and they can walk you through all the fits and what they think would work best.

          This sheet has worked very well for my high-withered, long-backed Am. Paint horse. He's 16 h and runs on the Thoroughbred, slender type build, so don't know if it would be a good fit for a Friesian. I also have one of theirs in a mid weight, but without the high-withered fit that might be better for a more muscular horse, but still works for my paint. I find them both to be very high quality for the price. Hope that helps.

          I purchased this sheet in a size 86 for my PerchxTB who weighs in excess of 1700 lbs. the sheet fits well through the chest and shoulders and is well contoured. The only negative is that the leg straps that were included were much too small, I had to change them out.

          I have a Tennessee Walker quarter horse cross and this sheet fits him very well. He is only 15 hands but round with big shoulders. I love the adjustable velcro aound the shoulders/neck so it is very adaptable to many different builds.

          This sheet fits well on my 2 horses who are both have prominent withers- one is an appendix and the other is a QH that is often mistaken for a warmblood. They live with a Friesian and by my eyeball estimate, it looks like this sheet could possibly work.

          I have a 16.3 Thoroughbred/paint but he's very Warmbloody physically. He
          has big shoulders and high withers and I have the hardest time finding
          blankets that fit him. He's cranky to begin with, but this blanket is so
          far the best fitting I've found for him, and maybe it will work for your
          Friesian too. Blankets are so tricky!

          I bought this sheet for a National Show Horse, who is also high-withered. Of all the sheets we've tried for him, this one has fit the best. We've been very happy with it. In fact, this is the second one we have bought; he finally wore out the last one, after six years.

          If your horse has a full coat, this sheet will cover that range. If your horse has a clipped coat, we recommend a lightweight blanket offered in our Marathon style item #14083 or the Tekno Fleece item #15002/15003 for those 40-60 degree days.

      How to Measure for a Horse Blanket
      • For best fit, stand horse squarely.
      • Measure from center of chest to edge of tail.
      • Take care to measure along the widest part of the shoulder and hindquarters.
      • The blanket measurement result is the blanket size.
      • If your measurement is in between sizes, round up to the next blanket size. Example: 73" = Size 74.
