Sun, insect and Queensland Itch protection – The Snuggy Hoods Anti-Itch Turn Out Hood offers protection from midges, flies and sunshine (along with mud, dust and dirt!).
It comes complete with built in ears and mesh eyes and is lined with a no-seam silky “shoulder and mane saver©” to prevent these areas from being rubbed or chaffed and helps the mane stay flat and tidy.
An adjustable nose band and elastic poll adjusters have been added for better fit and security.
This Hood is made of a robust, breathable, water repellent, heavy shower-proof, lightweight stretch fabric it’s fully machine-washable and designed to be worn 24/7, rain or shine.
Use with any fly rug or cotton/summer sheet for comprehensive protection.
Queensland Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the bites of the Culicoides midge and, to a lesser extent, Simulium Equinum. At present there is no cure for Queensland Itch. Once an animal develops the allergy it is generally affected every spring and summer.
