"Do you know of anyone who'd be willing to trade me a 70" turnout sheet for a brand new 72" turnout sheet?  Mary bought me one for my birthday and it's just a bit too big.  Well, I take that back, it's not a bad fit lengthwise and would fit him if he wasn't shaped like a dachshund.  Surely I'm not the only person in the world with this problem?"

My trainer's response: "Um..." and laughter.

I love my dachshund!

(I am actually looking to trade this NWT waterproof no-fill Shires turnout sheet, if anyone knows of anyone who would be interested.)


  1. So cute. Can't help with small blankets... since Hue is in 84's. You might try the online Facebook blanket group?

  2. I totally have the same problem! I feel like the blanket manufacturers are trying to do a good thing and make them "full coverage" but it really doesn't work with small horses. That's why I always love Saxon since their blankets are long rather than deep. Good luck with finding a trade!

  3. Totally adorable! But I can see where fitting him could be a problem...should be Cob sized blankets.

  4. Haha! I have the same problem with Shy.

  5. I have the same issue with Roscoe and the opposite issue with some of the others, short back w/ broad shoulders. Both can be tough.
