Shetland-Miniature-Donkey-Section A Combo Fly – Detachable Belly Band
The Shetland-miniature-donkey-Section A combo fly – detachable belly band is a fantastic rug made from soft but strong mesh which does not ‘snag’ as easy as some fabrics and is closely woven which provides excellent protection from the insects.
The rug has a generous tail flap with fillet string and also webbing detachable leg straps – the leg straps are not sewn in so can be removed if not required or easily replaced if ever damaged. There are shoulder gussets which allow the pony to move more easily which helps to prevent friction at the shoulder. There is soft nylon lining at the chest and mane line to help prevent rubbing. There are adjustable chest straps with quick release clips – the advantage here being that once the rug is adjusted to the size of the pony it is quick and easy to fasten as just clips to D rings. There is detachable belly band which can be adjusted both sides via Velcro straps which have flaps to protect and give extra security. There is a combo neck with double neck fastenings and a particular feature is the elasticated poll and the extra length in the neck – these features are designed so that when the pony is grazing there is plenty of length in the neck so helps to prevent pulling back and the elastic at the poll helps to keep in in place as well as less access for flies to go down the mane line.
The rug is machine washable and comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – ideal for storing when not in use.
If you are requiring a fly mask these are also available.
