Quality Fly Protection at a Great Price
July and August bugs can be BRUTAL in New England. While we have several horses from which the bugs can choose, one very large blond chestnut gelding we have seems to be a deer fly magnet !
Thank goodness for the Saxon. The 84" size fits him comfortably, protects him from biting insects, and is cool enough to wear on the hot, humid, hazy days of summer.
We are on the 2nd season with same sheet. But thanks to the price, we can afford a backup sheet just in case....
Great fly protection for the price!

We got this because our Paint sunburns on her white patches, one of which is on her neck. Other sheets don't cover the neck. After just a week of wearing this, we've noticed a huge improvement. Really helps with flies as well. Easy to put on and take off, and seems to be withstanding any abuse the horse throws at it :)

I have a 3YO quarter horse who is about a 69" length, I ordered the 69 in this and it is just a bit short and the belly band hangs a good 7" down from her belly. Not having individual back leg straps means that the blanket falls off to the side a bit, but she dose roll often and the short length probably create that issue. I have also had an issue finding a fly mask that has a hole cut to attach to her neck cover.
Now for the good stuff...
I love that it is UV proof, she is a dark blue roan so she bleaches terribly, this has already made a difference in the last couple of weeks.
Two other horses at the barn have this same sheet and they have turned it brown but that said there are still no holes. They, and mine, are in pastures 24/7 with shelters so it's a testament to the durability of this product. Honestly i will probably by the WeatherBetta fly sheet when this one wears out because i know how they fit and will come with a fly mask. That being said i still think this is a great product for the money and for the right horse's body shape.
