Product Summary:

Tough-1 Zebra Mesh Fly Sheet

The zebra patterns have been shown in recent studies that horseflies and common flies are not attracted to this pattern. The flying pests are confused by the way that the light reflects off the black and not off the white. The lightweight poly/nylon mesh allows natural air circulation over the horse which helps to keep the flies and insects away.

Features:

·         Lightweight poly/nylon mesh

·         Double buckle front

·         Adjustable surcingle belly and leg straps

Specifications:

·        Measuring Instructions - Stand your horse as square as possible, measure from the center of chest around side of the body to the point of the horse's rump just before the tail. If you horse ends up measuring between sizes always round up to the next size to ensure full coverage.

·        Washing Instructions - Machine wash with cold water – Gentle cycle with mild detergent. Air Dry or Machine Dry/No Heat

·        Horses Turned Outside without Shelter - Turnout Sheet and Blanket materials are waterproof and designed to keep your horse dry, however if your horse is turned out in a field without a run in shed or shelter during prolonged rain or heavy downpours your horse may still get wet especially in the neck and tail areas.

·        When using a blanket or a sheet on your horse it is critical to monitor the fluctuating climate and temperatures even with a blanket that is waterproof and breathable. The wicking properties of a breathable blanket are designed to wick away normal body heat, when a blanket is too heavy the heat and moisture cannot be wicked away fast enough causing your horse to sweat. The temperature and the length of your horse’s coat will determine what weight of blanket you should use. For this reason, most people who choose to blanket horses have several articles of horse clothing that offer varying levels of warmth.

Purple zebra is daughters favorite design

In the coastal Southeast, deer flies and other voracious flies are a big problem so fly sheets are necessary. I have read several articles regarding the protective effect of the zebra stripe pattern and thought I'd give it a try.

Flies and mosquitos in the upper midwest are very thick this season.

I was watching a program on zebras and how their coat patterns tend to repel flies, so I thought I'd try this out. Seems like a great idea, and my horse is pretty sensitive to bugs, and I am not a big fan of poisons, so anything that will repel flies without spraying poison on my horse, (or getting my asthma going), is worth giving a go.

There are no reviews yet for this sheet, and I need to know if it holds up, doesn't rub on the shoulders, and does not make the horse sweat? Is it true to size? My mare is a little stocky MFT.
thanks

Best Answer: I have not had mine long enough to know if it rubs, but the picture is a bit deceiving. It looks like there are two belly straps, however, the rear one is a leg strap, there is only one belly strap towards the front. My experience is that the sheet slips and slides across the rump, because it needs another strap on it.. I called Tough 1, they agreed it only has 1 strap, and if I needed two straps, I would have to buy a more expensive one. I decided to put a velcrow strap towards the rear, rather than send it back and pay more money for another one. It does not make my mare sweat, she does not try to rub or get it off. I don't know if I agree with the wording on the packaging, that the zebra strips keeps the flys away. I hope this helps. I think the size is pretty true, I measured as they suggested, and a 69 fits my mare just fine. I did order two other fly sheets, a different brand, and they had two belly straps, and they work really good, no slipping at at. If you would like the brand name, I would have to look at them in my barn. Let me know if you would like the brand name, they came from Stateline as well.
