      Custom made and inexpensive sounds like the way to go!

      there's a lot of amish around here!  I didn't even think of that, sher!  thanks!  the guy I board with just introduced me to a meminite (spelling?) place that has feed and tack.  I noticed that they make saddles.  i'll have to ask them if they'll make a blanket a blanket that will fit chant.  his withers are sticking out pretty badly, and he is really long. 

      margo, I considered, at this point, finding a king size flannel or fleece sheet and fashioning something for him.  all the blankets and sheets that I find that I like, and price isn't too bad, are out of his size :( 

      it doesn't have to be pretty, just help keep the chill off while he re-coups...and I'd rather it not rub on his withers. 

      thanks all!!

      I had the Amish make a Blanket for Dancer who was really long backed. It was a tarp shop but they made lots of blankets for standardbreds. It was good quality for the price. Cheaper than any of the commercial  ones. It was lined and nice and warm.

       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.
