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

      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.

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

          Two of my horses are on field board - this is an excellent sheet for them. I also like the neck covers that are available - easy to put on and to take off. The sheet fits much better than the comparable blanket. My only caveats is the limited color selection, and the belly band is not sufficiently adjustable for my mare.

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

            I use this blanket on my older horse when the temperature drops and remains below freezing during the day. I especially like the fact that it helps block the cold winter winds. He has worn it for several days now in and out of stall, in freezing wind and snow. He seems very comfortable with the fit.

            • 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.

            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.
