Fly rugs: Protection against annoying insects for horses
As a horse owner, it is important to make sure your horse stays healthy and happy. One of the problems you can face as an owner is insects, especially during the warm months. Flies, mosquitoes and other insects can not only be a nuisance to your horse, but they can also transmit diseases and cause skin irritations. Fortunately, fly rugs are available to protect your horse against these pesky insects.
Fly rugs are designed to protect your horse against flies, mosquitoes and other insects. They are made of a light and breathable fabric that keeps the horse cool and still offers sufficient protection. The material is woven in a way that prevents insects from getting through. This means that your horse is not only protected against insect bites, but also against the diseases that these insects can transmit.
Fly rugs are available in different sizes and styles, so you can find a rug that fits your horse perfectly. There are fly rugs that cover the entire body, including the neck and abdomen. Other blankets only cover the back and withers. Some blankets have a detachable neck and/or tail flap, so you can adapt the blanket to the needs of your horse.
Another advantage of fly rugs is that they not only provide protection against insects, but also against the sun. The fabric is often treated with UV protection, so that your horse remains protected against the sun's harmful rays. This is especially important for fair-skinned or sensitive-skinned horses.
Finally, it is important to wash the fly rug regularly to maintain hygiene and to ensure that the rug retains its protective properties. Always follow the washing instructions on the blanket's label to ensure it doesn't get damaged.
In short, fly rugs are a great way to protect your horse from annoying insects and the harmful effects of the sun. With the right fit and careful introduction, your horse can enjoy a summer without unwanted insect bites
