"Poor Fit in Shoulders"
I specifically bought this XL neckline/shoulder cut for my hard to fit Standardbred as blankets are always tol tight there for him. Unfortunately, despite the intent, the cut of the blanket actually puts more pressure on the shoulders and chest and is the tightest fitting and restricting out of any of the blankets I've tried. Out of curiosity I also tried it on my narrow shouldered Saddlebred and found it fell tight on her as well. I think because it is cut so low that the blanket ends up putting all it's pressure right where the cut of the neck falls - which is the point of the shoulder... Also, it did not have any attachment points for a hood, which is clearly stated in the description. Will be returning.
