I have been putzing around, trying to find Romeo a new turnout sheet. His old turnout sheet somehow got lost during his lease in 2007, and when I got him back, he had a "Splash's" turnout sheet that was a 74''. He's not exactly a 74'', he has always worn a 72'', but it was better than nothing!
It got pretty beat up last winter, and because it was too big it rubbed on his withers and cut into his shoulder.
and his 10 year old turnout sheet looks basically like this...
So it's offically time for a new turnout sheet.
He has a 69'' older HW Rambo that I found at a local tack shop in Germantown, TN for something ridiculous like $75 in perfect, used condition. It went through lots of blanket "wars" last winter and not a single snag. So I was more leaning towards a 69'' Rambo or a 72'' Rhino.
Yesterday, I just thought I'd take a little look see at the weather. Bad idea, Reagan. Very bad idea. Low of 37 Wednesday night. Naked pony?! I don't want to clip!!!
So I'm trying to find a Rhino on sale for a REALLY good price or find a used Rambo or Rhino, which is surprisingly hard to find in a 69'' or 72''. Lots of 69'' Rhinos and 72'' Rambos. Very annoying. Of course it has to look cute on him too.
I did find him a 69'' Rambo stable sheet that is in our colors for $25 and it is on our way to Starkville. Probably won't get here in time, but it is better than nothing :(
If anyone has a used Rambo or Rhino laying around in the fat man's size, let me know!!
