Perfect for rug wreckers who are prone to trying to trash their rug, it features a strong and durable 1200 dener ripstop outer to prevent tears, with a repell shell coating to keep the rug fully waterproof and breathable.
What Hesteyri Horses thought;
To keep our Little Price, Rowan’s coat healthy at 26, he is clipped fairly regularly and then rugged up throughout winter.
We were looking for a new rug for him this year as we thought we might need his old one for another pony, and Rowan gets pampered so deserve a new one!
We looked through quite a few rugs and makes, having found that some leak, some have a weakness at the seams or straps…
And most won’t cope with Rowan’s favourite past time which consists of putting himself in prickly hedges to get at the spots none of the other horses can reach, and subsequently shredding his rugs!
We decided on a Weatherbeeta because we have had so many in the past due to clothing the numbers of rescues who come through the yard. We have never had a problem with them (apart from the one time where a rat chewed Flicker’s thermic cooler but not sure we can blame the rug for that)!
Rowan had the rug for the beginning of October and was given a warm bath, which he was very excited about (someone thought he was going for a spot of winter showing…), before being dried in the previously mentioned cooler, which we think is a pretty perfect fit?!
Having had the rug for almost two months, in which time, we have had weeks upon weeks of torrential rain; hail; frost; and even a bit of snow, we are really pleased with it!
As well as keeping Rowan toasty (but never too hot) and bone dry, it has also stood up to some entertaining escapades of a seasoned rug ripper. It is a bit muddier than it started out, but Rowan always manages to find the ‘best’ spots for a roll!
It fits him perfectly with room for a chunkier pony, without being too big for our little one!
Don’t just take our word for it though! You can check out the rug for yourselves here;
