I lay the blanket on the floor with it folded in half so you have one side facing you. Then I measure the total length of the blanket from the furtherest point forward to the furthest point back by the tail.
I then subtract anywhere from 0 to 4 inches from the total length (depending on the style of the blanket) to get an estimated blanket size.
Then I throw it on a horse or pony of a known size to verify the calculation...
