Proper care for your turnout sheets and blankets - Turnout sheets and blankets are essential when it comes to keeping your horse dry and comfortable in the pasture. They repel water, but are also breathable and allow your horse to handle temperature changes. As spring (mud season!) is rolling around the corner, make sure you are properly caring for your turnout blankets and sheets to ensure the best performance and the most longevity.

The late John Dahle, founder of Norse Log Homes, began building log homes in 1975 when he and his wife Kathy lived in 100 Mile House, BC. In 1984, they moved to Nanaimo where he was convinced that Vancouver Island had the best Douglas fir house logs in the world. His father, Roald, assisted with some financial investment and, once repaid, John built him a cabin on Horne Lake which became the family’s go-to retreat for decades.
