Lulu gets a wardrobe upgrade

Yup, kids, this is what my blog has been reduced to:

Breaking news! My horse got a new blankie.

I've had my eye on these high-neck Rambo blankets forever and I found a killer deal from Jeffers Equine for a MW Rambo for $140. Then I found a coupon for $10 off, and got free shipping, so now my horse is dressed like the diva she knows she is.

Sorry mom, I can't hear you, the angels are singing too loudly.
This killer blanket deal came just in time for her green blanket, which I've had for a few years now, to not *really* be waterproof anymore. When it rains, the water doesn't bead off of it, but the horse doesn't get wet, so it wasn't dire, but then she ripped it a little bit. I decided to replace it before it got totally destroyed. It will be my back-up blanket.

The Horseware blankets looks so good on her.





Sleepy in the sunshine. She had pretty much zero interest in running around;
she simply wanted to stand there and sunbathe, or lick me half to death.

coming in for some kisses (and a peppermint)

I think she is imaging it's July and she's on the beach here. So cute.

  1. I ♥ Horseware!
    Brilliant bargain buy & the brown looks stunning on Lucy.
    Nancy needs a new turnout rug, I'm hoping to grab one in sales when credit card resets next week - fingers crossed I can find what I want in her size & my budget *blush*

  2. The Rhino patterns are way more fun than the Rambos! Horseware rocks. If you decide to upgrade more than one article of her clothing I found this membership on Pinnacle Horseware that rocks. Can't share details but if you want to email me I can share more specifics. Best $100 I have spent! That is how Huey got his Rambo Wardrobe upgrade this year. :)

  5. She looks wonderful! Do you like the way the Rambos fit? Are they roomy in the shoulder? My horse actually needs a new blanket and I'm trying to decide which brand to go with.

    1. It would depend what breed you are shopping for. I wouldn't say that this blanket would fit Maddy's beefy Appendix gelding well, even though he and Lucy are the same blanket size. She doesn't have a small shoulder, though.

      Just remember to get a size smaller than you normally would. Measuring guidelines are on their website. Lucy's a 78 in Baker/Dover/SmartPak etc, and a 75 in Rambo/Rhino/Weatherbeeta. Why they all can't just use the same sizing system is beyond me!

  8. Penny has the same blanket but just the standard neck - I got a good deal too. Wish it were the Wug version! William has this in Green - but its a heavyweight. Lucy looks pretty in that brown!

  10. Re-waterproofing a blanket is pretty easy. I have done it a couple of times using the waterproofing stuff for tents. You can get it for $3 or so at any big box store or outdoor store. Just make sure you do the spraying outside, the stuff stinks.

  12. Gorgeous blanket (and Lucy!) I had pretty similar one and it lasted forever, even with a ridiculously accident prone mare. I keep looking to find a new one on clearance too!
