Now that the weather is getting warmer, and even the oldest or weakest horse doesn’t need to wear a horse blanket anymore, it’s time to think about how to protect your equine friend from the sun, rain or creepy crawly nuisances.
Jeffers carries a wide selection of warm weather horse sheets including turnout sheets, UV sheets and fly sheets.
Turnout sheets are just like horse blankets, but they do not contain any polyfill. Turnout sheets are meant to keep a horse dry and clean while turned out. UV sheets are not waterproof, but are necessities for horses with sensitive skin as they prevent sun damage from UV rays…including sunburn. A fly sheet is designed to keep flies off of your horse. Fly sheets are highly breathable to prevent your horse from overheating in the hot, summer months.
