hey... Leah recommended I get in touch with you..

I'm moving to BC from Florida; you may have seen my posts on equestrian.

Because I'm from FLorida, I know NOTHING about blanketing. I know I need a rain sheet for my guy (we're going to be somewhere between vancouver and langley) but I have no idea what grams of fill corresponds to temperature! Not to mention I have a skinny non sweating tb, so I'm afraid to over blanket him.

Anyways, Leah said you're in her higher tier of trust, and that you're very horse savvy. Adding you if that's ok :)

wow! that's cool. you can get me via email at ploewen at gmail, too -- I'm curious where you will be at (I'm about 3.5 hours inland from you, but somewhat familiar with the area ;).

Personally, I like layers: a non insulated rain sheet - something breathable if you can afford it. And get it big enough to fit over a fleece or other insulated turn out safe blanket -- mine's polar fleece. That way, if your guy NEEDS extra warmth, you can add it, but he can have the rain protection (he'll need it! and be SURE to watch him for thrush -- it can be a real issue at the coast) if it's warmer out. We get less damp and more cold where I am, and I don't blanket a lot, but this combo is one that works REALLY well for me. But personally, if you are moving up NOW I might suggest that you wait until you get here for anything other than a basic rain sheet with no insulation. The weather will still be damp at times, but it isn't that cold anymore, and you may well want to talk to the folks at your new barn, and see how your guy is adapting, BEFORE you spend the bank!

Anyway, I am a bit swamped with a new job, and typing this WAY past my bed time (there was a special by invitation only sale at the local tack store tonight. I am now much poorer ;) but I have breeches n stuff). But I am happy to respond to emails etc, and I'll add you to my flist!
