          Comments about UltraFlex® Stretchy Mesh Stable Slicker Hood:

          This is a great concept, but the white material mesh is not durable at all (zipper, velcro, edges are super durable) - any little snag and there's a hole in the mesh. The horse next to mine took one small bite and it was ripped off his head. I like the idea of being white and cool, but just doesn't hold up - lasted maybe a week???

          • Q:

            My horse developed a serious eye abscess in his eye and has had surgery as a result of it. He has had a port installed in his eye lid to deliver medication directly into his eye. The process has caused him to itch and rub his port lose or detach it, too, many times - which could effect the outcome. I am ordering the slicker to try and protect the port line. What is the rough opening measurement of the eye hole? I am also trying to attach (maybe with velcro) a "drip cloth" to catch drainage from his eye that is irriating the skin under his eye. Do not worry, if I sense it will create a problem, I will never impliment the idea, but I am going to try.

              A:

              The eye holes are plenty large and are hard to measure exactly because of the stretch. The slicker should help hold the lines in place and also help keep the drip cloth in place to protect his skin from the drainage. You could also put a set of half or full cup blinkers over the slicker hood to protect the eye and the port when your horse rubs.

              It would depend on what size you are ordering. I order an extra large and it’s a 5 x 7" diameter eye hole when it’s on.

              Yes it will help keep horses clean and dust free. The stretchy mesh fabric is great for the summer months.

              Yes it will. I use this at summer shows in place of a lycra slinky. The horses don't sweat in the mesh slinkies.

            How well does this hood work in terms of training their mane? I am looking for a tight hood for a small 2yr old mustang to train her mane to one side, so I need it to be snug around their neck to keep the mane in place.

              This is lightweight and fits well. I think it would work well. I use it at shows to protect banding and braids.

          • Q:

            Have there been any issues with the head part being pulled into the eye area by rubbing or a pasture mate and causing eye problems? Have seen this happen with sleezy hoods and I am wondering if it would also happen with this one. I plan on using it under my horse's fly sheet to keep his shoulders from being rubbed raw.

              We have not had issues with the slicker moving around and going into the eye. You do not want to turn a horse out with other horses while wearing the slicker hood. If you are looking for shoulder protection to avoid rubbing under a sheet we recommend UltraFlex® Shoulder Guard, item #10545.
