sweet itch rug or no rug?


Antoine my horse has violent sweet itch. When I 1st bought him his tail was bold. It is now growing back. As Spring is coming I now rub some sweet itch insecticide in his mane and tail every night. I will also give him some yeats extract every week. I think of buying a sweet itch rug, but it is 179 GBP so if it can wait until April it is best. Can I expect preserving his tail with insecticide in his hair and yeast extract 1ce a week, or do I have to go for the rug? Antoine will always be the most beautiful in the world but sweet itch is itchy and also I would like him to be graded this autumn as he is a stallion and can produce more little foals with light brown eyes and a bucking dappled croup like his...

I rug/blanket, but I didn't pay a fraction of the price you are considering paying for a rug.

Here's some links that might help you.

Mio Fly rug, Equestrian Equipment Robinsons UK

I personally like ones like this that have the under belly cover as well as the tail cover.

There are many many more available under 50 pounds (no symbol on my US keyboard).
