You may notice it's getting cold outside...unless you live somewhere nice and warm right now...or are in the southern hemisphere...but for everyone else it's getting cold. And the snow will be here pretty soon... but in the house the only snow you have to worry about is the fake kind... oh and dust. Which is why some nice blankets are great for your herd, not only can they keep them nice and toasty they also protect from scratches and rubs. These blankets are simple enough that they can be done by hand or with a machine. I used plain fabric so I needed to hem the edges but if you use felt or fleece that won't be necessary. Actually in hindsight, felt or fleece would be better materials.
1) Take a 8 inch by 8 inch square and fold it in half.
3) Cut out the pattern above, checking its fit on your horse.
4) In the front sew the two flaps together to make a neck hole.
5) Tada... Its done... or is it?
Have some fun, add straps, borders, whatever you like!
