Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I bought my Size 86 Kensington sheet in 2002 for about $100- I forget from whom. I needed something to keep my warmblood gelding from bleaching during the still long fall days as he was in at night under lights to keep his coat sharp for a big fall show.
Likes: 1. It works. 2. It looks fantastic and fits very well and stays put despite my loosing the belly band eons ago. The original leg straps are still on it. 3. It's nearly indestructible. This sheet has been in *Continuous*, *Hard* service since it's purchase. Until this winter, my gelding wore it all summer to keep the bugs off, and all winter to keep his blankets intact. The Kensington is now on our 2 yo Percheron stallion and is still going strong despite him ripping the top chest buckle off- It does not ride up.
Dislikes: Well, the pretty fleece at the withers is long gone. The velcro attachment so you can wash it easy is great until the yearlings figure out that it can be pulled off.
Quality: Exceptional. The Textilene fabric is amazing, and the binding has stayed put and tight.
Summary: This is a great product and I wish it came in draft horse sizes! Draft horse blankets don't come in the range of excellent fabrics light horse blankets do, so they are much more prone to damage- 90-100 inch Kenny's would be WONDERFUL!
