    Default Calling all crafty horse people!! Horse blanket repair help!

    I have a lovely medium weight Buccas blanket that is 10 years old, but still in fabulous condition. The inner liner shell is starting to fall apart, and instead of paying $60+ to repair it, I thought about just "exacto-knifing" the liner out of it, so it just has the outter shell to use as a "sheet." I need a new sheet, but have plenty of medium-heavy weight blankets...just a thought?!

    Anyone have any objections to that? I wonder about the outter shell rubbing against my horse's shoulders. Anyone do this before? THANKS!!

    It's been my experience that the underside of a lined blanket-once the lining is removed- is pretty rough because the weatherproofing is on the underside. If it were me(i do all my own blanket repairs) I would fix the lining. You could also try removing the polyfill and fixing the lining. You could also open a corner and see what you've got in there before you go all the way.
    Sometimes you have to do what's best for you and your life, not what's best for everyone else.
