I actually watched a pony mare work her blanket off one day in the pasture. Stepped out of the leg straps, and butt cord, and 3 crisscrossed belly straps, and the neck. Took her about 15 or so minutes. There are tons of videos of horses doing the same. Rhett never bothered with them. Tore hoes in his stable blanket, sheet, and his heavy weight turnout. But never bothered working out of them. That said. I am all for cameras on horse property. We are installing security camera's this summer to protect our hens etc.

My younger horse absolutely hates blankets and will find a way to take them off if he can. After doing so and spending time in past places outside in extremely cold weather, he seems to have learned that maybe it's better to deal with them lol 😂.

If a blanket is even a little bit too big, or doesn't have leg straps he will take it off. If it fits right and has leg straps he'll still destroy it eventually but as I said he seems to have learned to tolerate them or he'll freeze. I don't rush to buy him a new one if he destroys his blanket. His skinny ancient mother I will, but she rarely destroys blankets. She loves her blankets and eagerly helps to put them on herself lol 😂.

She only rips them if she catches them on a doorway or another horse attacks her. Or if she gets caught getting up and tangles her foot in a strap and panics.

Her son shredded a blanket in early March one year and got to freeze the rest of the year. Never did it again lol.

Did you need to know who does horse blanket washing? The Tack Shack in Fremont has great service... They have pick up at Dover Saddlery in Plaistow, and Blue Seal Feed store in Derry... probably lots of other places too... cost is reasonable and they do repairs as well....OR there is a launtry place on Rt 97 in Salem NH that allows pet wash, horse blankets being washed there are fine there too.

one night I had to double up on my blankets. the outside blanket had the broken leg strap rings. I should have had it underneath her other blanket.but i had a family emergency. but i figured it would have stayed in place. I crossed the belly straps and buckled hte front closures. well in the morning i found it on the ground with everything still buckled!

Tack Shack also picks up from The Trainer's Loft in Tilton, NH. Fabulous service - they do a great job!
