Bucas Eczema Blanket Sweet-itch Zebra product description
Derived from the very successful Buzz-Off Zebra fly rug, Bucas has developed a new fabric with the same zebra stripes that provides protection against the Culicoides mosquito (midges). In horses with summer eczema, prevention is the key to success: make sure you are preoccupied with the problem, by getting your horse to blanket before the mosquito season begins.
The first of its kind, the Sweet Itch fly eczema blanket with zebra stripes prevents the horse from being stung by the small mosquitoes and repels the large, aggressive flies. It has been scientifically proven that the flies get confused by the zebra stripes and thus stay away from the horse.
The unique Sweet-Itch Zebra blanket is made from a specially developed fabric that stops even the smallest insects. Extra attention has been paid to the mane and tail sections to protect them well and to prevent itching. Bucas Sweet-Itch Zebra also offers UV protection and thus prevents sunburn and discolouration of the coat.
The design is a full 'body cover', with a neck piece up to the ears to fully protect the manes. An elastic, detachable belly flap protects the entire lower abdomen of the horse, from elbow to crotch. Shoulder pleats provide extra freedom of movement. A large tail flap covers this problematic area and prevents the small biting flies from reaching the tail. Bilcords keep the blanket in place and an overlapping, padded breast flap ensures that the blanket remains comfortable, no matter how long your horse wears the blanket.

well-fitting sturdy blanket
Pros: blanket reaches over the neck, Solid fabric, covers a lot of the horse, good fit, good passform, Large separate belly flap
Cons: neck piece a bit too tight for a frieze with a lot of front
Blanket stays well on the horse, also the neck piece stays well, despite my horse does not endure the rubber band for the ears. Only the neck is a bit narrow for my Frisian

Pros: Covered much of the horse, Good fit, Solid fabric
Cons: The belly flap would have liked me even wider
Finally my horse has less problems with horses! It is a solid blanket and the fit was good. Unfortunately it is a bit hot for very hot days, but that is the case with every blanket! Definitely recommended as an eczema / fly rug!
Lynn from Rotselaar at 28-08-2018:
Easy to use
Pros: Good fit, good passform, Large separate belly flap, Covered much of the horse, Solid fabric

Blanket fits equally well everywhere. Handy is that there is a detachable belly flap. Very satisfied with this blanket!

Question: I always have the Bucas buzz off full neck for my horses. This is not very strong and gets bad badly with the sanding. I hardly do 1 year. Now this sweet itch seems to be of stronger material. Is this true? Is this blanket not too warm?
Answer: The eczema blanket is denser woven from fabric than the fly blanket and therefore somewhat stronger but also somewhat warmer. However, the blanket is not warmer than eczema covers from other brands.
