Purchase: I was on the prowl for a fly sheet that covered the neck as well as the body, when I came across this fairly inexpensive sheet from WeatherBeeta. I bought this sheet from Dover Saddlery. I paid approx. $60.00 for it.
Likes: The number one thing I like about this fly sheet is that not only does it cover my horses body, it also cover her entire neck. The mush is so small that even mosquitoes have a hard time getting to her! Even though the mesh is so tightly knit is also is extremely breathable! It features WeatherBeeta's freestlye system which allows the horse greater freedom of movement, and a better fit. I also like that it is so soft(yet strong) that it does not rub my horse's hair on her chest or withers. Because she has such a wide chest and high withers it is hard to find any type of sheet or blanket that does not rub her, so that's a big plus! Unlike other fly sheets this sheet will stay in place because of all the buckles, and straps. I love that it has a belly wrap, because not my mare does not kick at her stomach because of the flies. The stomach wrap is adjustable and removable. It has D-rings for optional leg straps, it also has twin straps for the chest closure. It comes in sizes 63"-87" in 3" increments. It only comes in one color, but thankfully it is a color that looks great on every colored horse...it is called kiwi/tan. The body of the sheet is a great kiwi green color, and the straps and piping is a nice subtle tan color.
Dislikes: I do not like that it only comes in one color, but like I said before it is a great color.
Quality: The mesh is great because even though it is soft to the touch and stretchy, it is also extremely tough and durable! The nylon straps are tight and do not stretch, they have not frayed at all, and my mare has had it on for 2 months straight now, and she is hard on blankets.
Summary: After buying this sheet, I have seen the quality of WeatherBeeta, and how inexpensive it is, I plan on getting my fall and winter turnouts from WeatherBeata as well. I have always been a fan of Rambo sheets and Blankets, but WeatherBeeta is a the same if not better quality than Rambo, oh, and it does not make you go horse poor..lol.
