Bucas Sweet-itch X light
Derived from the very successful Buzz-Off Zebra fly rug, Bucas has developed a new fabric with the same zebra stripes that provides protection against the Culicoides mosquito (midges). For horses with eczema, prevention is the key to success: get ahead of the problem by putting a blanket on your horse before the mosquito season starts.
The first of its kind, the Sweet Itch Zebra Stripe Fly Eczema Blanket prevents the horse from being bitten by the small mosquitoes and repels the large, aggressive flies. It has been scientifically proven that the flies get confused by the zebra stripes and thus stay away from the horse.
The unique Sweet-Itch Zebra blanket is made of a specially developed fabric that stops even the smallest insects. Extra attention has been paid to the mane and tail parts to protect them well and thus prevent itching.
The design is a full "body cover", with a neck piece up to the ears to fully protect the mane. An elastic, detachable belly flap protects the entire lower abdomen of the horse, from elbow to croup. Shoulder pleats provide extra freedom of movement. A large tail flap covers this problematic area and prevents the small biting flies from reaching the tail. Leg cords keep the blanket in place and an overlapping, padded chest flap ensures that the blanket remains comfortable no matter how long your horse wears the blanket.
Bucas Sweet-Itch Zebra also offers UV protection and thus prevents sunburn and discoloration of the coat.
