I always said I'd never have a grey - beautiful but too hard to keep clean but well...
Anyways, any recommendations for a lightweight, durable summer or fly sheet to help keep my guy clean without getting too hot? Very low humidity here, but temps can get into the 90's during the day.
A friend told me I was delusional. I almost fell off my unicorn.
I find that my grey gets dirtier in his stall from laying down on manure than he does in the pasture so a sheet for outside wouldn't help much. And I personally find the fly sheets do nothing other than make the horses hot. The ways I keep my guy clean are to not turn him out after a bath until he is dry and to have lots of Easy Out waterless shampoo to get out any spots for lessons or shows. All the work is worth it, though, for that beautiful eye-popping bright "almost white" look when he is clean.
I use Kensington fly sheets over the summer as they offer the extra UV protection which is great for grey horses like ours! They are very durable and come in great colors but if I leave them on for too long my horse does get shoulder rubs Of course, he gets shoulder rubs with almost every kind of blanket there is.
