With winter blanketing, sometimes comes the problem of shoulder rubs.
Over the years of using many brands of blankets on many an equine, here is the best solution I have found for shoulder rubs: Dr. Scholl’s Moleskin. It is a very soft, flannel like, fabric with an adhesive backing. It comes in a 2-pack of padded or 3-pack non-padded. I prefer the non-padded. You can use scissors to cut it for certain areas.
On a dry, clean, blanket it adheres very well and I have had it last throughout the season (not always). It has even stuck to the blanket through a wash cycle.
Hope this tip helps you solve a winter problem in your barn and causes your equine friends to be more comfortable!
