I have a young WB gelding who is turned out 24/7 (except for feeding and bad weather) in a group of 7 geldings. He is middle on the totem pole.
For the sake of being able to work, my guy is given a full body clip, which means he needs blankets and sheets. Therein lies the problem.
I am about to give up. His 3 yr old year, he destroyed 3 Rambos. I thought it was just his age. This year, I went with a Dover Northwind turnout blanket, because of the warranty. I actually bought 2, so I could rotate them when I needed to get one replaced. We have now been through 8 of them…yes, eight since November. I give kuddos to Dover for their policy…I just walk in with destroyed turnout in a trash bag and they hand me a brand new one. But, Dover is an hour away and my husband is getting tired of the trip.
This morning, my trainer texted me to say that my gelding came in this morning with a torn up Rambo sheet (the only turnout sheet he owns). The warranty is no longer valid on this sheet and he apparently shredded the front of the blanket.
Any ideas? I need something that won’t break, but I need a warranty in case it does. I don’t have enough money to keep replacing Rambos or other expensive blankets! Do I just stick with the Northwinds and keep driving to Dover every weekend? Help!
