    Comments about StormShield� BODY ARMOR Turnout - Heavyweight:

    I love this turnout blanket! I have a very old horse that needed a new blanket. I saw the design of this one with the higher neck its perfect for him. His previous blankets have started to rub his withers, with him being old and his back dropped with age I searched for a blanket to protect the withers more. This is perfect! Sits high on the neck no rubbing and is so warm and cozy for him. I have other younger horses and would not hesitate in purchasing the same blanket for them it's great protection for any horse.

                How to Measure for a Horse Blanket:

                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.
