I just finished ordering Ms. Denali a new blanket. I got another tack catalog in the mail, and what can I say: it was a great price!! I love clearance sales. I HATE, HATE, HATE shopping for myself, but I could shop for DAYS for Ms. Denali. This blanket is lighter weight than her current blanket. Denali's current winter blanket (which I LOVE) is a Rambo Supreme. It was expensive, but it definitely keeps her toasty warm in our wet, WET winters. Ms. D, however, had put on some extra muscle/weight and her 78 is now a little tight across her butt. The shoulders are great! The red circles (or close to circles) are where her blanket is rubbing. I'm still not going to order her an 80, I've tried them and it was just so huge on her that it's not an option. Still trying to figure out what to do about the current blanket.
I had mentioned that this weekend I went to visit my friend's horse. He's a very cool Paint, but gets really itchy when he's shedding. I was scratching his butt for him, then moved away. He was pretty convincing that I continue scratching. He's always been like this. At my first barn he use to walk backwards into people so they'd scratch him. His new owner has him on a lot of different skin supplements that have improved his skin itching a lot! Every once in a while, he just wants a good scratch. Don't worry, I didn't press too hard!
