Model: Closed front fly sheet with belly band (View all Closed front fly sheet with belly band reviews)
Purchase: Purchased from Welsh's Western Wear and Tack in Canada for $80. I wanted to protect my mare from biting insects and provide some relief from the sun for her. I had also wanted a way to keep her cleaner as she loves to roll in fresh mud.
Likes: I like the wide velcro straps that secure the belly band. I have never had them come undone and my mare is in a herd that can play rough. The velcro also makes it easy to fit the band to any size. The blanket fits my mare perfect and has no rubs at all, thanks in part to the fleece wither pad. With a larger weave to construct the mesh, it seems to stay cleaner then other fine, screen type meshes you see. This also makes it very good in hot weather as it provide lots of air flow.
Dislikes: The closed front makes it fast to put on and take off, but if your horse is not comfortable with the practice of sliding blankets over the head, it could cause issues.
Quality: The mesh is very durable, thick and looks great. It has stood up to some fairly rough wear. I've seen other horses bite it and hold on to it while my mare is troting away and it doesn't have a mark. Yet even with the thick material it is still very flexible and conforms well. The blanket is constructed with each side as one piece. With only the top seam along the spine and the closed front there are few areas for seams or hard wear to need repair. The blanket also comes with two elastic legs straps which have ensured that the blanket has not come out of place in the two months I have had it. A top quality product.
Summary: I love this blanket as does my mare. It is a great value, one of the best sheets I have seen and at one of the best prices. I would buy another in a heart beat.
