    I think people in warm climates are missing out on one of the best aspects of horse ownership - blankets! I have a terrible blanket obsession. Tristan is, without a doubt, the best dressed horse on the farm. And despite his huge collection, I still see blankets I love and think he "needs". Thankfully I'm getting better at controlling my impulses;)
    He currently has:
    1 heavy Weatherbeeta turnout with neck cover
    1 heavy Eskadron turnout
    1 medium Wilson's turnout
    1 light Rambo turnout sheet
    1 light Bucas stable blanket
    3 stable sheets (Weatherbeeta, Baker, Beval)
    3 fleece dress sheets (Eskadron, Bucas, Weatherbeeta)
    2 square coolers (Saratoga Horseworks, Stateline)
    1 fleece quarter sheet
    1 Triple Crown irish knit
    1 Rambo net cooler
    1 really, really nice Integrity show cooler
    1 ceramic sheet from Back on Track

    Ugh. Really, it's a sickness. When I think of how much of my truck I could probably pay off with the money I spent on blankets:rolleyes: . In my defense, several of the blankets were either prizes or hand-me-downs from friend's horses. And the ceramic sheet is the best investment I've ever made.
