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.

Nice, very well fitting blanket!

Schöne, sehr gut sitzende Decke!

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: Blanket reaches over the neck, good fit, solid tissue Decke reicht bis über das Genick, gute passform, festes gewebe

Cons: Way too small belly !!! Order extra belly bib here in the shop, tight breast Viel zu kleiner Bauchlatz!!! Extra Bauchlatz hier im Shop mitbestellen, enge brust

Beautiful blanket, which sits except on the much too small belly, very well. It reaches up to the neck and covers this area well. Unfortunately, the abdomen does not fit, is too small and tight. Even though my horse does not have a big belly and is rather athletic. In this case, you should order a Ersatzbauchlatz (here in the shop).
Schöne Decke, die bis auf den viel zu kleinen Bauchlatz, sehr gut sitzt. Sie reicht bis über das Genick und deckt auch diesen Bereich gut ab. Leider passt der Bauchlatz gar nicht, ist viel zu klein und eng. Und das obwohl mein Pferd keinen dicken Bauch hat und eher athletisch gebaut ist. In diesem Fall sollte man sich einen Ersatzbauchlatz dazu bestellen (gibt es hier im Shop).

Good material, robust, good fit

Gutes Material, robust, gute Passform

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: good fit, big separate belly, solid tissue gute passform, großer separater bauchlatz, festes gewebe

Our horse tends to rub his stomach, neck and tail and has problems with flies on his stomach. This blanket is the first to survive and stay that way. I especially like the triple front closure (magnet, buckle, velcro). Well, it is a shame that neck piece can be put on without having to pull the blanket over your head. So far, after three weeks, very satisfied. Horse: Great Holsteiner Mare
Unser Pferd neigt dazu sich am Bauch , Hals udn Schweif zu scheuern und hat Probleme mit Fliegen am Bauch. Diese Decke ist die erste, die dies übersteht und drauf bleibt. Besonders gut gefällt mir der dreifache Verschluss vorn (Magnet, Schnalle, Klett). Gut is auh, dass Halsteil angelegt werden kann, ohne die Decke über den Kopf ziehen zu müssen. Bisher, nach drei Wochen, sehr zufrieden. Pferd: Große Holsteiner Stute

Goed passende deken op mijn IJslander. Biedt goede bescherming tegen insekten. Buikflap had iets langer gemogen en wat ruimer.

nice blanket

fijne deken

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: Solid fabric, Covered much of the horse Stevige stof, Bedekt veel van het paard

Cons: The belly flap would have liked me even wider De buikflap had van mij nog breder gemogen

Fine eczema blanket. Horses remain well cool. And it will not break quickly. Definitely worth the price. And everyone thinks it's a very nice blanket. Only the belly flap might be slightly larger.
Fijne eczeemdeken. Paardlief blijft er goed cool onder. En gaat niet snel stuk. Zeker de prijs waard. En iedereen vind het een hele mooie deken. Alleen de buikflap zou misschien iets groter mogen.

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? Ik heb altijd de Bucas buzz off full neck voor mijn paarden. Deze is niet heel sterk en wordt met het schuren snel slecht. Ik doe er nauwelijks 1 jaar mee. Nu schijnt deze sweet itch van sterker materiaal te zijn. Is dit waar? Is deze deken niet te 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. De eczeemdeken is dichter geweven van stof dan de vliegendeken en daarom wat sterker maar ook wat warmer. De deken is echter niet warmer dan eczeemdekens van andere merken.
