Shetland-Miniature-Donkey-Section A Lightweight 50g Combo Turnout Rug

The Shetland-miniature-donkey-Section A lightweight 50g combo turnout rug is an extremely useful and versatile rug and is popular in the range.  These 50g rugs are ideal for hardier types in colder months or for Autumn/Spring and wet/windy conditions for all.  We thoroughly recommend 50g rugs as a lightweight option as the tiny layer of filling does not give much warmth but the ponies do not seem to get as ‘clammy’ under them we believe because the air can circulate a bit between the pony and the elements and stops the coat from flattening so much.

The rug is made from 1200D waterproof/breathable outer fabric which has been Teflon treated so it is tougher, more repellent and more stain resistant. The rug has soft polyester lining to help prevent rubbing and keep the coat smooth and there are shoulder gussets which allow the pony greater freedom of movement which also helps to prevent friction to the coat.  There are detachable webbing leg straps which have not been sewn in so can be easily removed or replaced if they get damaged.  There is a generous tail flap with reflective strip and adjustable cross surcingles with rubber washers to help unfastening.  At the chest there are adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips – the advantage here being that once adjusted to the pony the rug is quick and easy to put on at chest as just clips to fasten. There is a combo neck which does not have a rough neck seam on the underside which can cause rubbing.  There are double adjustable neck fastenings and a particularly good feature is the elasticated poll which helps to help keep the neck in place and stop so much rain/wind going down the mane line.  There are reflective strips at the chest, hind quarters and on the tail flap which assist with visibility which is particularly useful if having to lead on roads.

The rug is machine washable and comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – ideal for storing when not in use.

  • 1200D waterproof/breathable and Teflon coated outer fabric
