Okay so to start off I hate sleazies whoever invented them should have come up with a way better design... however my horse is white and other horses like to chew his mane and I am trying to make it grow out so their not really helping:) so I have a cheap sleazie that I had on him BUT it would cover his eyes and it caused his eye to swell, not a lot but just enough to make me mad about the person in invented them haha.
It fit perfectly but its like the eye holes were to small. So I got this idea to cut the eye hole parts off and just keep the ear holes to help hold it on.... has anyone else done this who can tell me if it works or not? And I sew so its not going to look totally ghetto:)

It will hopefully look like this:

I normally just make basically a pony tail with the sleazy between their ears with a braiding rubber band, no cutting necessary and it takes up the extra space. I know I'm explaining this really badly!

Ya I don't understand? Like fold it back so the eye wholes are over the ears along with the ear holes? Haha

The ones made by schneider's are amazing. They have extra large eye holes. I have never even come close to having a problem with the eye hole bothering my horse.

There's no folding, you just gather the sleazy up between their ears and then use. Rubber band to secure it. It holds the eye holes where they're supposed to be instead of them sinking down

If it caused his eye to swell, it was too small.

I have to agree with the above, it must be too small or either too big.
I have a few, all different brands, and I have never had an issue.
Could you post a picture of your horse wearing his?

This is my mare with one of hers own.
