I chose this blanket because of the tummy coverage. I sure wish it was reinforced a bit at the buckles under the tail because in less than one week one of them has already ripped free. Other than that, it is light and allows breathability. Hopefully it will last at least through the summer months. My only other complaint was the amount of time it took to ship and arrive. My poor horses in Wyoming were getting eaten alive by sandflies which cause them to get huge welts on their bellies and horribly swollen in the sheath/teet area, and dousing them in poisonous fly sprays twice a day did little to keep the darn things off. So far these blankets are doing the trick!
