        • Q:

          Is this blanket hot on the animal? How breathable is it?
          Asked on 4/23/2017 by Nancy from ohi

          1 answer

          • A:

            This blanket has venting but is very heavy.It is breathable but depending where you live it can be warm.We live in Georgia where it's extremely hot and humid and bugs are everywhere.We use fans in the shelter's that ours can get in front of if it gets warm( we have fans out of reach and they  have guards for blades).Another trick is to run hose water under the blanket in heat of day to cool it off .Our horse has to have fly sheets, mask, and neck piece about ten months out of the year because of insect allergies and this banket is the only one durable enough.The neckpiece is very breathable especially if you buy correct size and attach not too snug.A lot of air can get in.I love how the horses hair lies nicely underneath the fly sheet too.Dorinda Hennings

        • Q:

          Have a deep, tall, and high whithered OTTB. Anyone have thoughts on this blanket for horses like him? He's overall hard to fit, but the whithers are the worst. Most blankets rub like crazy too.
