in which it is held on the horse.


HORSE BLANKETQ SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 301,211, dated July 1, 1 884.

Application filed Janu To ctZZ whom it may concern:

Be it known that I, CLARENCE J. CANAN, of Omaha, in the county of Douglas and State of Nebraska, have invented a new and Improved Horse-Blanket, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

The object of my invention is to provide a. new and improved horse-blanket, which is so constructed that a double layer of material covers the horse s breast.

The invention consists in a double-breasted horse-blanket which has two flaps at the front end, which flaps are both folded over the horses breast, and are held in place by means of straps and buckles. One of the flaps is pro vided with a transverse slot, through which the other flap can be passed.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in both the figures.

Figure 1 is a perspective View of my improved horse-blanket, showing the manner Fig. 2 is a view of the blanket, showing it spread.

The blanket is formed of two halves or sections, A and A, one for each half of the horses back, which sections are united along the back or are made in one piece. Each section is provided at the front with a side tongue or flap, B and B, respectively, which tongues are adapted to be folded over the horses breast. On the outer surface of each flap a strap, 0, is secured in such a manner that it projects from the free edge of the tongue, and on each section of the blanket or buckle D is secured a short distance back of the inner end of the flap, as shown. A short slot, E, is cut in one section in front of the buckle D, and the flap of the other section is provided with a slot, F, extending nearly across its entire width at the inner end. Each side of the blanket is provided with a slot, G, for the surcingle, and at the rear ends of the section a buckle and strap or other devices may be provided for uniting the rear ends of the blanket over the horses hind legs. The slot F can be made in the right or left flap and the 'slot E must be formed in the opposite section or half of the blanket.

The blanket is held on the animal in the following manner: The left-hand flap, B, is

passed over the breast of the animal and in the buckle D on the left-hand half of the blanket; or the right-hand flap, B, can be folded over the horses breast, and then the strap 0 of the flap B is passed through the slot E in .the left-hand half of the blanket, and is held in the buckle D on the left-hand half of the blanket. The left-hand flap, B, is then folded over the right-hand flap, B, and its strap is held in the right-hand buckle,D. both flaps will cover the breast of the animal, which is thus well protected.

In place of buckles and straps, buttons and button-holes can be used.

Having thus described my int ention,what I claim as new, and desire to, secure by Letters Patent, is

1. The horse-blanket having at 'its front end two flaps, one passing through the other, to oppositely lap the sides of the blanket, and having fastenings to connect them to said sides, substantially as and for the purpose set forth.

2. A horse-blanket provided with two flaps at its front end, each flap having a projecting strap at its free end, and one flap having a transverse slot through which the other flap can be passed, substantially as herein shown and described.

3. A horse-blanket provided with two flaps at its front end, each flap having a strap at its tially as herein shown and described.




In all cases free end, and one flap havingatransverse slot D,secured on the sides of the blanket, substan-
