Over Winter

I would like to join Aimee over at Sprinkler Bandits in a little self-indulgent whining about this year's winter.  I'm over it.  Specifically, I am over:

This: 


And this:


And this:
The blanket, not the pony.



Which has caused this:


That integrated neck blanket has been rubbing his mane all winter, but between Thursday and yesterday it just took all of his mane off in that one section.  I am very sad about it.  Those Tuffrider blankets have been terrible since the first day, with snags, ripped trim, and just general poor quality all around.  I bought them to be one season blankets anyway, but I am already planning on saving my pennies for something that will last next year.

Between blanketing woes, unending snow and frigid temperatures, and losing my mind over chapped lips and   my heating bill, I am ready for winter to be OVER.  Bring on spring!

  1. Isn't that funny how their mane's get thinner if not rubbed out by the blankets.. weird.

  2. Oh my gosh, in all the years I have used blankets I have not seen a rub like that. Crazy!!!
    Shop over the summer, there are normally really good deals on great blankets.

  4. I hear you on the blanket rub part! Luckily I have managed to keep it at a minimum so far. Even though we dont have snow like that I am just ready for the sun and some shows :)

  6. We had the same rubbing issues years ago with Horseware's half neck blankets - which were NOT cheap! We just sucked it up TBH, their manes grew back quickly enough
