      thanks, Maryanne! 

      that's not bad, at all!  chant is pretty thin from dealing with the pain of his bladder stone (why he's in for surgery), so his withers are sticking out pretty good. he's not normally so thin.  i'll look at this blanket.  maybe I can layer underneath, and it would help with the rubbing?

      I don't know what you consider cheap but Big Dee's has a 1200 denier blanket that is $74.50.  I have the blanket it wells fairly well. It is rubbing a little on my very hard to fit TB and the stitching around the blanket has come undone.  I think for the money it can't be beat.  they also have stable blankets that are much cheaper at around $40.00, but they do not fit as well.  If your horse is big bodied they will run a short on them but they are pretty indestructible too.

       hi everyone.  I've come asking for suggestions on finding cheap, large blankets.

      chant has gone for surgery and will be home in a few days.  then he will be on 30 days stall rest, and on drugs to help his 30 days confinement be easier on him.  so I thought I would search for a blanket for him for recovery, plus he is currently in a heated barn, then will be brought home to a stall in an open barn.   problem with blanketing chant, he has destroyed every blanket that I ever used on him.  so I'm looking for a cheap, who cares if it gets destroyed blanket, to help him during his recovery. 

      he's an 80 - 82, and I can't find anything that is cheap enough to not care about it being destroyed.  I've even checked ebay, amazon and craigslist. 

      any suggestions are very well appreciated.
