Excellent protection from sun and insects especially for Queensland Itch sufferers.
XL Tail Flap! Wider and longer tail flap for additional coverage and protection.
Made of a clever fabric the Bug Body is robust yet lightweight and fully breathable so suitable for use even in hot climates. The fabric is water repellent, stops UV rays/coat bleaching as well as protecting from midges, other flying/biting insects, dust and dirt.
The Snuggy Bug Body comes as a two piece neck and rug combo for ease of fitting. The rug – with built in full belly cover, tail wrap and flap is fitted first. The neck then slips over the horse’s head and is secured to the top of the rug with Velcro all around.
The top of the neck sits closely behind the ears and is elasticated with adjustment to prevent any unwanted bugs getting in. The mane area of the neck is lined with a seamless non stretch lining.
Small straps are fitted to the withers and chest section of the rug to prevent gaps. The withers and chest pads are elasticated to prevent pressure. Three Velcro patches are fitted to the rug and belly each side to ensure a close fit and a strong binding is run along the spine to keep the body of the rug in shape and prevent it slipping backwards.
Plus there is also the option to add the Anti Itch Fly Mask with ears and fringe for extra coverage for severe sufferers or sensitive horses/ponies.
Offering poll to dock protection – the Snuggy Bug Body® is the most innovative, protective ‘Bug Body’ on the market. When the neck is detached the Rug is suitable for use alone, with any Snuggy Hood, other hood or any rug. Also excellent as a under layer in winter months, with or without the neck section.
