I looked for another fleece sheet, but it seems like all the manufacturers have gone to "dress" sheets and are no longer making sheets that are intended as liner layers. I then purchased, from our new local Dover store (DANGER DANGER DANGER) a Rambo blanket liner with 200 g of fill. I got it home and put it on, only to find out that the Rambo liners do not go with the original Rambo blankets. Not only that, but they don't have a second set of Ds so that you can use leg straps with them... fail. So the Rambo liner got returned, and I spent my lunch hour with one of the very helpful folks at the Dover store as we sifted through every single option they had in a size 75. It went something like this:
*sorting through blankets*
Helpful Dover Person: How about this liner?
Me: It's lined with cotton. I want it lined with the slick Poly stuff so it doesn't rub.
Helpful Dover Person: What about this stable blanket?
Me: The material feels really cheap. I know it's going to be used as a liner, but is there something a little sturdier?
*rummaging even deeper. Apparently every horse in south central Texas wears a 75?
Helpful Dover Person: How about this? (Holds up a Rambo Newmarket sheet that I've secretly been lusting after for years)
Not going to lie, y'all. This sucker is THICK. It's HEAVY. It's obviously very well made (Horseware, how I love you), and it looks super warm. Also, I just love the colors. I was so tempted... and then I thought about how it would look on this horse:
I'm really not a stripes sort of guy. Maybe plaid instead?*
The Newmarket fleece might not look too bad on Paddington, though... ;)
