Pur­chase: Blan­ket racks

EQUUS - - Eq Handson I -

• CON­SID­ER­A­TIONS: a good blan­ket rack will keep the gar­ment close at hand but out of the dirt and away from ver­min, nib­bling horses or other po­ten­tial haz­ards. con­sider the weight of the blan­kets you’ll be hang­ing, whether they’ll need to dry on the rack and how much space you have in your barn aisle or tack room for blan­ket stor­age.

• OP­TIONS: for thin­ner blan­kets that won’t need to be dried, a sin­gle, sim­ple bar rack hung on a stall door or wall may be enough. some mod­els are col­lapsi­ble so they don’t pro­trude when not in use. you can also pur­chase a por­ta­ble hang­ing rack with mul­ti­ple tiers to store sev­eral small blan­kets. to en­cour­age dry­ing or man­age heav­ier blan­kets, con­sider a heavy-duty, arm-style rack that mounts high enough on the wall to hang the full length of the gar­ment by the neck open­ing.

• PRIC­ING: from D20 for a sin­gle bar rack to around D100 for a multi-blan­ket swing­ing arm-style rack
