As an attractively priced basic model, this rug could be a saviour for your sweet-itch prone four-legged friend. It consists of a breathable, thin functional fibre material and has the advantage that it dries particularly fast. This model can also guarantee safe UV protection. Neck and tail are optimally covered. There is also a removable belly flap with clips. Despite the all-round protection, the rug offers optimum freedom of movement on the paddock thanks to the elastic material! Elastic on the legs and head prevent the blanket from slipping. We also recommend the matching THERMO MASTER Sweet-itch Mask (Item no. 421 898), which can easily be attached to the neck with Velcro fasteners and provides protection for the head and eyes (not included wtih the rug!!). Material: 100 % polyester.
Breathability refers to the ability of a man-made fibre or natural fibre to release the body's own water vapor. Breathable fabrics allow for quick drying already during use and thus prevent both heat build-up from the body under the fabric as well as cooling due to dammed up moisture.
This product provides protection against ultraviolet radiation with a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor in fabric in clothing) 50+.
This product is (also) available in pony size. Ponies and Shetland ponies have a special exterior which requires specific equipment that is particularly tailored to their body dimensions. Aside from their low height, small hooves, a compact back as well as a short croup are often characteristic for different breeds of ponies.
