Rug rubs

Hey guys,

Well my little arab has been getting some rub marks from his fly sheet, and as we will be showing him, its not a good thing :P

Someone once told me that rubbing oil on their shoulders will stop the rubs. But it was only a certain kind of oil (I think olive).

Has anyone heard about this before??

I have never heard about that oil trick, but one of my geldings gets blanket rubs on his shoulders also. We were told to buy him a shoulder guard and it works rather nicely.

I have never heard if useing any oil..but does the sheet fit him properly? Also you can get some MTG to put on his shoulders to get the hair to grow back :)

Its a little small cos he's grown so much.
I've tried bibs before and they just rub through. I don't like them.

Maybe you can get him a new one ( not saying to go out and buy one) but do you have other horses that are bigger than him that you have sheets for?

Definitely buy a lycra shoulder guard, they are fantastic and fairly inexpensive!

It could be he's uncomfortable with his sheet. Maybe look into getting him a new one?
Sorry that you didn't ask for what he has, but I just thought I might put that in :P Your probaly aware of it, though.
