Chrome's Surprise

My husband bought Chrome a surprise! And here it is . . . .

. . . . . . . . his very own blanket!!

Normally I don't like to blanket horses unless it's very, very cold, because it prevents them from growing a good winter coat, but Chrome was shivering, so we decided to go ahead. I'm only leaving it on him when it's raining so he'll still grow his coat. He was a little skittish, so I worked on desensitizing him to it. It only took five or ten minutes to get it on him. It won't take long before he realizes it keeps him warm and he'll be begging for me to put it on. :D


  1. He is SO big compared against you. I would have given the baby a blanket too!

    I love hearing about Chrome. I've so wanted a horse for so long and am living vicariously though you.

  2. Well, Chrome, I think you should have held out for something more stylish, but I suppose any port in the storm. Stay warm.
