The best American sweet-itch blanket. I'd buy another. We made it through one summer with this, but all the belly buckles pulled off on both sides and had to be re-sewn. The seam along the mane split, and the material along the neck between the velcro closures was worn through from scratching. But the tail held! And the ears!! Love, love the ear piece! Wish the hood and body closed completely in front. Otherwise, great blanket!
