Well I would love to win anew blanket, and I'd be very greatful, because my horse is out all the time and could do with an extra layer on, last winter my horse ripped her rug, and she looks cold, but as I'm only young I can't keep affording to buy a new blanket/rug all the time, so like I said I would be very greatful, thanks :)


Why I need a new blanket:
My horse got his blanket caught on a nail and then the cheap thing ripped and made a giant hole, so now it's got hot pink duct tape all over it and his pasture buddy is scarred of the brightness of the tape :(

I look for quality(which clearly I didn't do a very good job of, but I bought it off of a friend so the cheap price went with the cheap quality), price(high school student who can barely afford her horse needs to be aware of prces), and of course the color! Which by the way I LOVE the zebra print blanket in the picture :D

My mare Annie is in need of a winter blanket. She was new to our farm 2 years ago and is quite smaller then everyone else. Non of the other blanlets fit her. I think her big personality deserves a blanket to match. I look gor a blanket that is free moving and durable and water prof. Also one that has plenty of stye.

My horse really needs a new blanket because he is 15 years old and has had a really rough life, and after 15 years of it Im trying to make sure that the rest of his life is the best that I can make it for him. He started out on the race track where he had quite a few wins, but with wins comes battle scars and all sorts of injuries. They would just bute him up and send him back out there. He is all heart and tries to please everyone that he is around. He kept running for them but his injuries kept getting worse and worse. So when I finally found him he had a pulled tendon, wind puffs, and to many other injuries to mention. With the costs of hay this year it has been really hard on my family to come out the extra to go and buy a new blanket for him, even though I know he really needs one. He is getting to where he is really hard to keep weight on and the weather is being really hard on him already. He really really needs this after what all he has been through hopefully together we can have one last win on this blanket.


My mare Fame needs a new blanket... She lives pretty much outside all winter.. My husband is in the Army and the cost of boarding is very expensive and the hay prices have gone up so much.. So I really can't afford to buy her a new one..I have to always put a couple on her to keep her warm and dry.. But through the years they have gotten pretty torn up... She really deserves a new one instead of so many hand me downs...

I have a lovely old standarbred broodmare who after years of racing is arthritic in her stifles and tough to keep weight on. She loves to be out with her friends no matter what the nasty upstate NY weather! She needs a warm turnout to stay warm and so she doesn't burn any more calories staying warm than necessary! :)

I would love a new blanket for the horse I am fostering. Cowboy came to our local horse rescue just over a year ago. He was a show horse from a baby and was horribly abused. His tongue almost cut in half from a chain being put in his mouth! The rescue could not adopt him because of his aggression towards people and was going to euthanize him. I stepped in and offered to foster. Cowboy is now a pretty happy boy, loves to be in the pasture so a nice blanket would be awesome! I look for a blanket that is sturdy, nylon lined and waterproof. Lots of room in the shoulders and good straps!

I love my horse more than anything in the world and a blanket would keep him so very warm on our cold, cold days and nights and would forever be appreciated.

We are actually in need of several blankets but my submission will be for the horse in our herd with the greatest need since the contest is for only one blanket. This spring, we lost our home to a tornado and along with the home, was the building housing our horse supplies. Mama JB turned 29 this past spring and she has not aged gracefully. She came into our lives through a private adoption and soon after, we learned that she is deaf and as she ages her vision is slowly going as well. She is a little senile but I certainly love her to peices. She needs a blanket more than any of the private rescues and adopted horses in our herd. She doesn't handle winter well and I would like to keep her around as long as I can since she makes every day a little brighter in my life.
