    I am curious trying to guess about blanket sizing... I just want an idea about blanket sizing.

    So if you wouldn't mind sharing....

    What size blanket?
    How tall is your horse?
    What breed is your horse?
    Maybe even a picture of you horse if you feel like it?

    I am interested in everything from 11 hand ponies to 18 hand drafts... :)

    78". He's a coming 4yr old QH. He's bum high and 16.h at the bum last time I measured. So he might grow a smidge more >.<

    No pictures with a blanket on but here's him any ways. (He's acctually only had a blanket on once. lol.)

    Do you have anyone else that blankets their horse that could maybe let you try it on your horse? That's what we did to figure out Starlites size, then tried Starlites on Dream to figure out her size...which is the same as Stars.

    What size blanket? 72
    How tall is your horse? Starlite - 15.2 hh, Dream 15.1 hh.
    What breed is your horse? Starlite - Standardbred/QH, Dream - Morgan.
    Maybe even a picture of you horse if you feel like it?

    Starlite...

    Dream...

    Starlite could wear a 70 (you can see hers is shifted, thats how it usually is...but she likes to roll alot too, so could just be that), anything bigger for either one of them would be too big. We have these on the first hole in the front. Dream is bigger especially through the front end so hers fits pretty well, Starlites is a bit too big. We also have a stable blanket we bought in size 72 that BARELY fits Starlite, so definately doesn't fit Dream. Starlite's chest is exposed in it :eek: so be careful, because sizes will vary with different brands.

    If you post some pictures of your horse with the info you asked us, someone might be able to help you get an idea of what size to get. :)
