Static Electricity Build up on Rug
I think this is the right place for this talking point. If not apologies, i have searched the forum can't find any reference to my problem.
Currently my mare wears a winter rug. We are in Uruguay. When I remove her rug static electricity, which has built up on the rug and her, discharges and it causes a problem as the shock causes her to jump as if suffering an electric fence shock.
Questions I have, please, if any one can help.
1 Anyone else out there that suffers with this ?
2. Any ideas on how to prevent build up of the static ( without having her not wear a rug) as she moves
around during the day ?
3. Any ideas on how to disperse the static so it doesn't shock me and or her ?
Appreciate all suggestions. Thanks mvfjps
