Shetland-Miniature-Donkey-Section A 100g 1200D Teflon Coated Turnout
The Shetland-miniature-donkey-Section A 100g 1200D Teflon coated turnout rug is extremely popular in the range.
We thoroughly recommend rugs with 100g filling as even though they don’t provide very much warmth the bit of filling does seem to give them a bit more protection when wet and windy. We also believe from our own findings and feedback received that the filling provides a small barrier between the horse and the ‘elements’ which seems to help prevent them becoming too clammy especially if the sun does make an unexpected appearance! They are therefore an excellent choice in Spring/Autumn and in particularly wet/windy weather or for hardier and unclipped horses during the colder months.
The rug is made from 1200D waterproof/breathable outer fabric which has been Teflon coated which makes it tougher and more moisture and stain resistant. In particular the rain ‘beads’ off the fabric so the rugs are not so heavy to handle and dry out a lot quicker. The rug has a nylon lining which helps to prevent rubbing and keep the coat smooth and shoulder gussets are fitted which allow the pony easier movement which also helps to prevent friction on the coat. There are adjustable cross surcingles with rubber washers to help unfastening and a generous tail flap with fillet string. The rug has detachable webbing leg straps which are not sewn in – this means that they are easy to remove if not required or to replace if become damaged without the need for sewing in. There is a wither protector for the comfort of the pony and 3 D rings for attaching should one be required – the necks are listed separately. At the chest there are adjustable chest straps with D rings and quick release clips – the advantage being here that once adjusted for the pony it is quick and easy to put on at the chest.
The rug is machine washable and comes packed in a zipped bag with handles – ideal for storing when not in use.
