In last week’s online poll, TheHorse.com asked about your horse blanketing headaches. More than 800 readers responded, and we’ve tallied the results

This week’s results were fairly evenly distributed. Of the 810 voters, 234 (29%) said their biggest headache involves preventing horse-made tears, holes, and missing straps. Another 209 voters (26%) indicated they have no blanket issues or that their horse doesn’t wear a blanket. Almost one quarter of respondents, 195 voters, reported that their biggest headache is finding a blanket fit that doesn’t cause rubs. Still another 172 voters (21%) said their problems involve choosing the right blanket weight for different temperatures.

Additionally, 86 respondents provided comments on their blanketing headaches.
