    Default Flymask: standard fleece or polar?

    My pony has rubbed some hair off his muzzle right where the flymask fleece fits around it.

    I've tried fastening it looser and brushing the fleece to keep it soft.
    In the truly hot weather I leave the masks off & wipe their faces with spray.
    It's the standard synthetic fleece, not the polarfleece.

    Does anyone else have a thin-skinned horse or pony, and what material do you find least abrasive for a flymask?

    Just the regular flymask, I wash them everyday and leave it loose for the sensitive guy.

    Thanks, Laura
    looser does seem to be doing the trick
    I don't have spares, so a daily wash won't work - too humid here for them to dry overnight
