This is my first sewing project for a horse.  It's actually a cooling sheet, but it serves the same purpose as a bathrobe, lets them cool off slowly after exersize during cool weather.  The pattern is Suitability 7900.  I used red anti-pill fleece, wide velcro and webbing for the straps and head band, and trimmed it with black braid I picked up for $1 at a yard sale.  (In the pic, he isn't sporting the headband/hoodie part.)

It wasn't complicated, but it was a LOT of fabric.  This is sort of a practice run for another sheet I'm planning that will be a little more decorated and detailed.

Thanks for looking.

Looks nice on him!  I don't know too much about horse fashion, but this is much nicer than the ones the horses across the road from me have on in cold weather.

You can buy patterns for horse clothing? Somehow that makes me very happy! Your have a very handsome horse and the blanket looks great on him.

Oh!!! I need a cooler, and I am too cheap to buy one.
Have any hints of a tutorial? I am sure I can wing (being its just a rectangle)  it but how many yards did you need.
