So, I have 3 horses. My 2 year old is of course the lowest in the pecking order. I've got a new Tough1 blanket coming this week but last year all of his blankets were ripped by his "pals". It's not so much they are going after the blanket but this young guy likes to test the limits of his independence and the other 2 horses are constantly "reminding" him what's allowed. They aren't beating him up, but he gets his fair share of reminders.
I blanket all my guys and I've never had this big of a problem w/a horse having his blanket torn by others so repeatedly. It got expensive last year w/repairs and replacements. I'm thinking of putting a rain sheet over his blanket, but not sure if that's really much of a solution. Could I separate him? Yes, but then, he would get no time in the pasture to play. Any ideas?
