    I got the Gladiator sheets and the quality does look good, and there are some nice details. The bad news is that the sheet totally doesn't fit one of the horses; chokes him and pulls down tight on his withers, all while being too big/long everywhere else.
    I am looking to buy him one of the Saxon sheets, and I am wondering if the sizing is comparable to the rest of the Weatherbeeta line (i.e. about a size big), or if they are more "economically" sized.
    Input?

    I have had good luck with the Schneider's brand.

    The Saxons run a bit big. My QH gelding that usually wears a 76"-78" takes a 75" in the Saxons and their 78" fit the paint I used to have that measured out to an 80".

    Saxon's sizing has been similar to weatherbeetas for me.

    Thanks. Looks like he'll get a Saxon in the same size as his Weatherbeetas. Now I just need to sell this Gladiator so he can get a new jacket

    Well I have had the opposite with the Saxon's. Run same as Weatherbeeta front to back, but not a lot of drop in the sides. My big bodied OTTB looked like he was wearing a mini-skirt in a 78" and my fat QH looked like he had on a muscle tee in a 75". I finally got rid of them. However, my slender built large pony has a 69" that fits her perfectly.

    Yep, I've seen that comment elsewhere. I know there is no way the Saxon would fit the other gelding; he is extremely deep through the barrel. This guy is pretty slim though, so I think it's a good match

    I've been curious about the McAllister blankets because there are soooo many on Ebay but I've been afraid to try them. Has anyone else tried them?

    Anyone have any experience with the McAlister 1680D turnout sheets? My horses are not hard on blankets/sheets. Thanks much

    I've been curious about the McAllisters, too. They're suspiciously cheap (they are on sale at Horseloverz all the time) so I haven't given them a go.
