    Default Needed Blanket/Sheet for Rescue Mare, FL

    Hello all!
    I picked up an emaciated mare that I adopted last Sunday. I had some sheets that I borrowed from a friend of mine but they were WAAAAY to big for the poor girl. Since I can't have her wear something 4 sizes too big without any meat on her bones to hold it up, poor Heidi is without anything right now. I have to buy a lot of extra supplies to help her weight gain, and I can't find anything else reasonably priced, etc at the moment.

    We don't need anything fancy, I can fix small tears/rips. I was wondering if anyone had a 76" sheet or blanket that they don't need anymore lying around? I can pay shipping, etc. She is a 16.2 hand mare...but because of her condition she can't "hold up" a blanket that is too large for her without the risk of getting stuck, etc.

    If anyone has anything please let me know, Heidi and I would greatly appreciate anything we could find!

    Thank you so much!

    Christina & Heidi

They may be able to help with a sheet and a blanket for her. Hope this will work so she can have a sheet and blanket for the winter.

    I am in Cocoa, FL and have at least a stable blanket or two and possibly a turn out I could contribute. Where are you located?

    I am in Holiday, FL...which is near Tarpon Springs in Pinellas County. I am more that willing to drive to meet somewhere! Thank you for all the responses so far, hope we can figure something out
