Kensington fly mask with ears and detachable nose piece
Weatherbeeta fly sheet with tail flap, belly band, and
detachable neck cover (yes, he has gotten it filthy already)
New set of Kensington fly boots
(the last set was pretty busted up after 3+ months of constant use)
Try and get me now, f*ckers!
I'm not sure if I'm sold on this fly sheet. While I love Weatherbeetas and it does fit him well, the material is so thin and light that the neck cover falls and flops around. It does have a loop at the top to attach to a fly mask (if it doesn't have ears or has a special neck cover loop) or a halter; but Salem's fly mask has nowhere to hook the loop, and he doesn't wear a halter unless I'm messing with him. I originally wanted a Schneider's bellyband fly sheet, but they were out of stock in size 82. I guess we'll just have to make this sheet work. (Anyone know how to add some kind of loop thing-y to a fly mask? I really don't want to cut a hole in it.)
On the plus side, it does seem to make Salem much more comfortable. And, even though he rolls a ton, he was still very clean tonight when I took off the sheet.
And this is pre-grooming -- not bad!
Do any of you use fly sheets? If so, what brands? What do you like/dislike about them?
