While Annie has been the main baby horse of the show now Luna is taking over that role. Four years old may still be a baby but eight months takes the cake! Because Annie was already three when I got her she was already in horse sized clothes. Luna however is very solidly in the youth section of attire. I think with horses most of us end up developing an eye for what fits various horses. I can usually get to within a size with my guestimates. You can throw all of that out the window when you add a baby horse into the picture. I feel like a new mom that knows their kid isn’t in newborn sizes but probably isn’t wearing age appropriate sizes either.
Given that Luna was born in February she is a very large weanling. Actually more of a yearling in terms of size so I decided to purchase a Kensington Yearling Turnout. It is adjustable from 48″ to 60″. I have a feeling that before spring Luna will have this thing busting at the seams! It is already a bit of a mini skirt.
I guess this is kinda dependent on your climate because I would imagine if you live somewhere toasty you might not bother with blanketing a young horse. For those of you with experience with baby horse clothes how do you decide what you need? Based on my friends recommendation I bought something with a bit of fill but I kind of wish I had something with no fill too. But if won’t fit after this year so is it even worth it?
