Derby Originals Reflective Safety Winter Blanket for Foals are a better and more modern solution to outdated foal blanket designs. Our foal blanket features a pair of adjustable double-velcro chest straps that allow for the blanket to be adjusted to fit smaller or larger foals. These chest straps are elastic to allow for a more comfortable and snug fit, which helps keep your foal safe and from becoming tangled. This blanket also features matching elastic double-velcro belly straps for the best possible fit. All four chest and belly straps are covered in reflective tape to greatly increase visibility and help keep your foal safe outside or in the pasture. We're proud to be the original inventor of the hardware free foal blanket, which has no metal parts to increase your foal's comfort and safety. Our innovative blanket also has a pair of adjust-to-fit neck-straps to allow for a better fit around the neck opening. Our blankets come with an oversized tail cover that is held in place with 3 sturdy velcro tabs and can be removed and replaced as needed. Our blankets are made of 600D, ripstop, waterproof, windproof, and snowproof nylon, which is durable and designed for indoor and outdoor use. This blanket has 150 grams of PolyFil filling, which is designed to keep your foal warm without overheating in temperatures down to 10° F. Our blankets have been designed with care to last and keep your foals comfortable and are backed by a one-year limited warranty.
- DESIGNED TO GROW WITH YOUR FOAL - our safety blankets have adjustable straps and elastic on the chest and belly straps to allow for the best fit possible. Our blankets can adjust by 6" so they fit your foal for longer and can fit multiple foals.
- NO HARDWARE DESIGN KEEPS YOUR FOAL SAFE - this blanket is metal-free for increased safety. This, combined with other features such as a reflective design, adjustable neck straps, and a padded belly band, increases both your foal's safety and comfort.

Let me preface by saying I am not a blanket endorser. I realize there are times especially after clipping when these things are necessary. But rarely in the real world of nature. Horses adapt easily and quickly to their surroundings and I find blankets are mostly used to please the owners.
That said we had an unexpected early delivery and this foal did not arrive with much hair and was struggling in 30-degree weather to hold his temp and have the strength to nurse. We bottle fed him through the first night and laid with him with blankets and things looked quite bleak. I ordered this blanket praying he would still be alive when it arrived the next day. The next day brought the sun, a foal that had learned to suckle from mom - yay and this lovely blanket.
While the blanket was tiny it was still quite big for this preemie. However, we cinched up the velcro doubling it back and tightened the adjustments on the neck area and then added some vet wrap around the belly a few times so it wouldn't hang too far. I'm sure it would fit a regular new born quite well but this guy was probably less than 50 lbs.
It truly was a lifesaver. Between this and the Madigan squeeze, we have a healthy vibrant foal who is just a bit over a month old to date and has grown quite well into this blanket. He will need a bigger size in another month or so.
This blanket has no metal hardware so there is nothing to get caught or to damage your foal. The reflective tape is helpful, especially when viewing from cameras at night as he is easily located.
Super durable, and the reflective areas really help find them in the dark!
