This is my second purchase of this fly sheet for my mini. He has no tail (due to cruelty of a person), and the sturdiness of this sheet with the tail protector keeps him comfortable from flies. The first one is so effective, we bought a second for back up! I will only ever buy Kensington brand! They are designed to block UV rays while shifting around on the horses coat to help “groom” them as well! Was happy r and m tack had this in stock!!!
