The inspiration behind the Field Relief Horse Fly Rug
Research that the colour yellow repels flies is the inspiration behind the Field Relief Fly Rug*. It is a full fly rug with yellow coloured mesh with orange and black binding, and fits in seamlessly with our new and updated Field Relief Fly Masks to keep your horse protected from sun, dirt and those pesky flies from the tips of their noses all the way to their tails! It is also a UV fly rug to ensure horses are protected from not only the flies, but the suns rays too.
Features of the Field Relief Fly Rug:
This full fly rug features a number of adjustable straps on the neck, chest and belly flap. Therefore, this helps you get the perfect fit for your horse. The stretch hood sits nicely over the ears and incorporates a hole for the forelock. In addition, the elasticated straps allow your horse to have the freedom to move his head as he grazes without restriction.
Horses move a lot in the field as they graze. For this reason, we have incorporated an anti-rub lining down the neck, over the withers and on the chest.
The belly flap of this full fly rug extends over the majority of horse’s midsection. This keeps it fly free and if you own a grey or coloured horse, it helps keep them clean too! The belly flap can be altered to fit a range of horses with three adjustable, elastic sliders on each side.
The Field Relief Fly Rug has a long tail flap with a plastic covered fillet string. This allows the rug to be put on and taken off quickly. It is also easy to wash and more hygienic than traditional string due to its plastic covering, and can be taken off easily using the clips.
UV Protective Mesh:
The mesh in this UV fly rug not only helps keep the flies away, but it also provides protection from the sun. Therefore, this helps to prevent bleaching, which can be useful for those darker coloured horses in the summer months. The lightweight and breathable mesh makes it comfortable for horses to wear all day or night.
