Are they still as good as they were 15 years ago?
I have a 9 year old Amigo Wug (Mara's!) and a 2 year old Amigo Wug Lite and the latter is falling apart.
So Mag has two Amigo Wugs that are falling apart but still function - they still keep him dry even though ripped up and one has a broken tail strap. (The tail strap just hangs there but somehow the blanket does not come off despite daily rolls in the mud - how? Normally a blanket needs either a tail strap or leg straps to stay on.)
Before we go back to America I wanted to be sure Mag has two fully operational, non ripped blankets.
Yesterday they both arrived from Amazon. (In case you're curious what we pay here, the Lite cost 150Euros and the 250gram was 167Euros. I think that's still quite a good deal for 1200 Denier, and these are just the Amigo type, not the fancier ones that can cost 300$.)
Somehow the weather here is still not warranting a blanket with any amount of fill so he's in a brand new rain coat. Which he covered 100% in mud the very first night.
I love this brand, this durability, waterproofness, and the fact that my horse does not have blanket rubs despite wearing a blanket 100% of the time all Winter long. (I do apply "Show Sheen" to the points that would rub, but for some blankets that is not enough.)
What do you think - is Horseware still worth investing in - or have other brands surpassed them, as they have declined in quality and risen in price, like almost everything else?
