    Cool Best place to buy Winter blankets

    As everyone knows things are tight right now but I need to buy at least 5 new blankets
    this year. Does anyone know where I might be able to get the best deal??

    Wise Choice Tack in Lexington, KY is the cheapest source I know of for Rambos. I got a med. weight with leg arches for $149 (that might have been including tax- I don't remember). They're listed at $167+ elsewhere, plus tax and shipping.

    I've had good luck finding deals on eBay.

    Agreed. Great blankets, reasonable prices. Even my bebe didn't make a dent in his Schneider's turnout last winter.

    I always have to kinda laugh at these threads, because "inexpensive" is SO subjective. When I see folks say, "Their blankets are only $120!", I just about stop breathing for a minute. To me, a really inexpensive blanket is one under $40.

    OP, not real sure what you define as inexpensive, but I highly suggest ebay. I've gotten stuff on there for a real steal, and that's NEW blankets, not used.

    Or if you wanna get something from a store, horse.com has some really inexpensive stuff, as does tack-wholesale.com. statelinetack.com also has some cheaper stuff.

    I like Schneider's, their stuff is really good and I've had good experiences with them standing behind their products if there's a problem. State Line at least used to make their own line of blankets that were shockingly high quality for the price, but I don't know if they still do. I bought a heavy weight turnout of the SLT brand about 5 years ago on sale for $20, and it still looks great (except a bit on the tail flap that was chewed by a baby, but it's just cosmetic ) and keeps my old guy nice and toasty. It's also one of the few blankets that doesn't rub him.

    My heavy duty Schneider's Turnout was $52 + shipping. It's three years old now and looks like new.

    Don't get me wrong, I think schneider's stuff is a lot cheaper than most. More expensive than horse.com and ebay stuff, but I think it's also a bit higher quality.

    If you monitor Tack of the Day regularly, they often have surprisingly good deals on a wide variety blankets this time of year. And for some, you can order as many as 10 (other deals may have lower limits).

    I agree with going with Schneider's, right now they have a special buy on the Dura-Tech® Viking II its 1200D at 600D price, the heavy weight is only $70. I would say that is one hell of a deal.

    I ordered sheets last year for the weanlings from horse.com and they were fantastic...I think they were like $50 if you bought two of each...which I did since we had 4 babies last year...this year I ordered a sheet and medium weight...I think the med. wt. was $69 1200 denier...great quality...I'd recommend them as they are a good bang for the buck.
