A designer to celebrities like Hilary Duff and Serena Williams, LA-based Dalia MacPhee has created a fire-retardant blanket in an effort to help horses that may be affected by wildfires. In addition to keeping horses safe from superficial burns, the Equisafe Blanket can be purchased with a GPS tracker that will assist in locating the horse once the imminent threat has passed.
These blankets were specifically designed to be used on horses that are turned loose as a last-ditch effort to save them when evacuation measures fail. The cost, $180 for fire-retardant only and $300 for a blanket with a GPS tracker, is inexpensive compared to many equine blankets designed to keep horses warm.
