I'm probably showing my age now.. but does anyone else on here remember the 'good old days' when New Zealand rugs came in bright grren canvas with a blanket lining & stable rugs were made of jute, also with blanket linings (which you'd put on inside out if pony was still wet from being naked in rain). Sweat rugs were like your grandads string vest! There was no variation in weights/colours/neck covers. Those were the days when horses were waterproof & survived the British winter time without the wonders of modern fabrics & velcro!!!
