    Default Heavy weight blanket w/ neck cover ...

    I'm looking for one of these under $200. Is it possible? All of the ones I've found seem to be in the $250-$400 range. My guy isn't that rough on blankets - I just want a blanket that will cover his neck - I'm planning on clipping him again soon and I don't want his neck to get fuzzy like it did last time!

    Any suggestions?
    Thanks!

    I don't know much about this brand, but Dover has the Shires heavyweight combo for $189.. 2000 denier and 400 grams fill.. reviews are pretty darn good:

    Dover also has the Rider's Int'l Supreme heavy neck cover on sale too: http://www.doversaddlery.com/product.asp?pn=LD-24103
    That could be used with the Supreme turnouts, also on sale (just make sure to check that it has the hood attachment ability!):

    I got my TB a Weatherbeeta Tri-Star Freestyle 3-in-1 about two years ago.

    Love it! http://www.horseloverz.com/Weatherbe...pr-359973.html

    Got it from www.adamshorsesupply.com w/ an discount email coupon, add in free shipping and it was all just a smidge over $160 I believe.

    1680D. The neck detaches (though I never detach, I just switch blankets) and the neck either has no fill or only 100-- great for the Spring/rainy weather!
    The body has 100 fill and a removable liner that's either 200 or 300grams.

    Weatherbeeta seems to have quite a few blankets w/ full necks.

    Lots of places offering free shipping on orders over $100.

    Most of my horses have this blanket:
    http://www.doversaddlery.com/product...&ids=219945642.

    It is very warm, the neck cover has fill, it fits them well, and it stands up to them playing outside.

    I have the Saxon one from Stateline (pretty purple plaid, too--too bad have chestnut gelding) and really like it. It's on the second winter and still looks great.

    I bought the Weatherbeeta detach-a-neck and hate it, the neck piece doesn't fit correctly.
    I would go with one piece blanket combo for a better fit.

    I just bought a Kodiak combo heavyweight from Horseloverz for one of my broodmares and I am pleasantly surprised. Good fit, longer on the sides, covers the belly well...

    I also have a Tough-1 Polar Shield + Neck cover combo; that is a more awkward mix, but it is also on a coming yearling, so that does influence the fit!

    I also have a Weatherbeeta Orican Combo and it works extremely well, although I am so pleased with the Kodiak that I wouldn't buy this one again... Kodiaks are HALF-PRICE from the WBs!

    Thanks everyone!
    I ended up going with the Shires blanket that TooManyChickens posted - it has really great reviews online! It seems that the red was back ordered (apparently the "navy" blue is actually purple) so I called my local Dover and they had one in another store that they're shipping to my local store for me. Hopefully it will arrive soon!
