    My favorite turnout for my hard to fit draft mare. The VTEK wither relief style is perfect for her, and I'd love to see more of the stable blankets in this style. Awesome blanket in a perfect weight!

    Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

    I purchased this as a cold weather blanket. We rarely get really cold weather here, usually only a handful of days a year. My mare is kind of hard to fit. She is an Arabian with high withers. The VTEK design allows more room for her withers. She doesn't like blankets, but after wearing it one very cold night, she didn't mind a bit when I put it on her the following night. The adjust-a-fit neck is helpful since most blankets are way too big in the neck area for her. I bought this blanket in the fall of 2015. It still looks almost new. Until last summer, I had my horses at home. Last year we moved and she is now boarded at a place with a run-in shelter, so I need to blanket more than I did when she was at home and had an actual stall. I did purchase a heavier weight blanket this past winter for those especially cold night.

      I used this blanket when I needed a little more than just a sheet. The fleece is between two layers so there were no white hairs stuck all over everything like with a fleece blanket! The fit is great for my older horse who is losing his topline.

      Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

      I bought this blanket for my 29 year old Arabian gelding who needs a little more protection when the nights get cool. We live in the Lowcountry of SC and the weather, while usually warm, can change in a hurry. This blanket gives a bit more protection than just a plain sheet. He does not sweat under it if I cannot get out soon enough to take it off before the day warms up. I wish it would come in a different color because I want to purchase one for my Quarter Horse mare.

      Comments about Stormshield® VTEK® Tekno-Fleece® Turnout Blanket - Lightweight:

      I have a 17h OTTB with extremely high withers! He's turned out 7 days a week and plays pretty rough with the other boys. Schneiders blankets are the Only blankets I'll buy for him because of the fit (Vtek) for his high withers and their durability. They're priced a little higher than some of the other blankets but they're worth the money because I can get years worth of wear out of them! It would however be nice if you had them in more colors and patterns. Thank you!

      • Q:

        Is there a pony version of this blanket? If not, do you plan to make one available at some point? Would love to have one in size 52!

          A:

          At this time we don't have a pony version of a light weight. You could do a turnout sheet over top the pony nylon blanket liner #18241. The liner has 180 fill which would be similar to a light weight.

        Hello, how many grams is in this? Thanks

        • A:

          It's fleece, so no fill, but it's the equivalent of a lightweight (100g or so) fill blanket.
