Bucas zebra print Buzz-Off fly rug with full combo neck. Dress our horses up like zebras this summer and keep them fly free, really?!

Yes it’s true. Following trials in Hungary and Sweden, researchers have discovered that horse flies hate stripes, which is the reason behind Bucas’ latest fly rug design. To experiment, pallets containing vegetable oil were painted differently, either all black, all white or with black and white stripes. These pallets were then placed in a fly-infested fleild and results showed that there were far more flies in the black painted pallets, fewer in the white but the fewest flies of all were found in the pallets painted with black and white stripes. Afterwards, researchers carried out a similar trial on model horses covered in glue. At the end of 59 days, the black horse had caught 562 flies, the brown one 334, the white one 22 and the zebra patterned horse had just 8!

It is thought the flies and the stripes confusing and as a result they tend to steer clear. Based on this research, Bucas have developed a first of its kind fly rug with thin zebra-like stripes, to keep horses free from the stresses of summer flies for good. This unique zebra fly rug, which is the same design as the Bucas standard Buzz Off fly rug, has shoulder darts for extra room and movement, and a full combo neck which overlaps in front to ensure no flies can get in.

Made from specially developed light weight fine mesh fabric which blocks even the smallest of insects and reduces the effects of ultraviolet radiation. The full neck provides full protection along side the innovative belly pad which also ensures the rug is kept in place. The overlapped, padded and lined front provides superb comfort and protection, leg straps included. What’s more, there’s the option of a matching fly mask, too. Without doubt, this clever new Bucas zebra patterned fly rug, which offers added UV protection, is definitely a product your horse would want you to buy.
