Horses are sturdy creatures, but when the weather is excessively cold, they could use extra protection to keep their bodies warm. Horse turnout blankets offer a simple and cost-effective solution towards keeping a horseís body at the right temperature when the weather gets too chilly.
There are lightweight, mid-weight and heavyweight turnouts. They differ in the amount of poly fill contained in the blanket. Mid-weight is always a safe choice, as this type of turnout offers sufficient insulation to keep most horsesí body heat in check. Lightweight turnouts are advisable for mild cold, and heavyweight turnouts are for extremely cold conditions. With up to 400 grams of filler material, it can get very hot under a heavy blanket, so itís best to check the right level of warmth for the horse before buying a turnout.
