I am trying to determine the best blanket style to get for my mare.
I re-acquired her last May and in the year that she was gone she seems to have had a wither injury. It looks like she was rubbed at the back of the wither with a cut-back style blanket. The hair is white in a patch about 4 inches long along the spine.
She was really irritable about being groomed on her chest and behind her elbows. Chiropractic work seems to have helped but I'm scared that blanketing her is going to aggravate things again.
I was thinking the Hug style might work, but in the pictures it doesn't ride very far up the neck, I'm afraid it might slip back and rub the old injury.
Exactly, I had a rambo wug that I loved. Too big for my new horse though. McAlister and several others also make some extended neck options for cheaper alternative. I own a McAlister that I got for $60 but have yet to put it to heavy use so can't say how it holds up or wears.
Schneider's has a high neck style that I got for my Morgan/Welsh pony. It has velcro in a couple of places around the neck so you can adjust it. Would something like that work? I think it was around $125 with S&H.
