Id be wary about how small the eye holes on his hood are, I've seen alot of nasty accident involving hoods that have ended up over eyes! The bigger the holes the better.

He's very cute, good luck!

I second that, I was grooming for my friend on eday and I stayed the night before with her when she plaited up her two horses.
They had the slinkies on to and we got out 6.30 the next morning and her poor 17hh wb was standing in his yard blinded by his stupid slinky! So lucky he just stood there like a good boy we don't know how long he had been like that. And when we unrugged her paint mare, she had a sore back from there the hood had been clipped around her belly. But something must have happened for her to get a sore back from it, it wasn't tight enough to do that on it's own. We were told she flipped over backwards in her yard but we'll never really know.
-Needless to say she sold the slinkies and bought cotton hoods.

I know I tried it on and thought it was a bit tight, but I didn't really know what to do.
The stupid skinny came up his neck though lol, it was pretty much like he didn't have it on.
I think I will cut the holes bibber if I usse it again, but it hadn't shifted at all when I came and got him ready the nest morning.

Hahahahaha, I just commented on the last post about how shiny he looked, now I know why!

Yeah, slinkies kind of suck. Mine fits my mare, but at the show, I had a rather pissy moment when I discovered she'd been laying flat out and actually managed to SOAK wet manure stains right through the slinky onto her white neck.

Definitely looking for a better hood next time!

I think I will cut the holes bigger if I use it again, but it hadn't shifted at all when I came and got him ready the nest morning.
Yes we had that problem of it coming up the neck, the lady at the store recommended the use of bailing twine to tie it around the belly, but I wouldn't recomend that as if they have a mishap during the night (like flipping over in the yard like my friends horse did) then the twine obviously doesn't have any give and that is what we think ended up wrecking her back. You could sew on an elastic strap with a plastic buckle or something, or maybe even a surcingle? I know a few slinky hoods I've seen recently have those.
