Foal blankets
« on: September 21, 2016, 01:10:55 PM »

Has anyone used dog  apparel for mini foal blankets? If so what size do you find works best?
If precious is due Jan/ Feb I would like a few on hand.

I'm thinking mini foal blankets are around 18-22" long, but that is measured from center of chest to center of tail.  Dog blankets are measured down the center of the back, so a shorter measurement.  I'd take a tape measure to a pet store, and see what dog sizes are close to those measurements.   [Hope that made sense.]

Deb Robison makes them, I think she has some listed on the sale page, because she uses them on her tiny falabella babies, but I know she makes them in all sizes!
