Panama's jammies

Yesterday Panama got pretty sweaty again from our ride, so I used the wickster again. Here he is in his jammies:

My horse in his wickster

The fabric is a coarsely woven cotton waffle-weave type material, and works amazingly well. Walking him in the indoor with this on, it only took perhaps 15 minutes for him to dry.

He is getting used to it now, but at first he didn't like it much. It has a nylon liner at the edges that rustles when he moves, so when I first put it on him he tried running away from it for the first 30 seconds or so that I was leading him. And even after that, he walked with his back humped for several minutes before he realized that the noise was just the blanket, and it wasn't going to eat him. Now he's okay with it, if still not entirely crazy about it!

Thanks, Kate! I like it on him too. We had a great New Year's -- I hope you did too!
