PRESERVE THE LIFE OF YOUR HORSE’S BLANKETS!
Here are some helpful tips in preserving the quality and longevity of your horse blankets:
- Since manure and urine will break down the material of your blankets, on the first sunny day you are able, hang the blanket over a fence and hose down any spots that your horse has rolled in.
- At the end of the blanket season, send your blankets in for laundering and repair so they are ready for the winter.
The turnaround time in the winter seems much longer when you need the blanket than in the spring, when you are done using it.
- Store your blankets over the spring and summer in a Rubbermaid-type plastic container once they are clean and repaired. This will keep out rodents, barn cats, and dogs from using your horse’s blankets as bedding when not in use.
- Have your blankets waterproofed if they have shown any sign of water seeping through. Keep in mind that the older a blanket is, the less able it will be to hold a waterproof layer. After a few years of use, including improper laundering and long-term manure and urine stains, the integrity of the material becomes compromised. The material essentially opens up and does not hold a waterproof layer as well as a newer blanket. Have an older blanket waterproofed every year.
