This neck cover matches the Bucas Buzz-Off Fly/Rain Sheet in Zebra Print, a rug that solves the dilemma of which rug to put on your horse on warm rainy days or days of sunshine and showers.

If you want to turn your Bucas Buzz-Off Fly/Rain Sheet into a full neck combo then this matching neck cover will do just that.

A bit about the rug...

This new Bucas Buzz-Off Fly/Rain Sheet is a turnout rug which is designed to “confuse” flies and keep the horse cool in the hotter months.

The Bucas Buzz-Off Rain in Zebra is a hybrid rain and fly sheet. The sides of the rug have a zebra stripe that repels flying insects whilst the top of the rug has a waterproof turnout material. This solves the problem of which rug to put on when weather is varying between sunshine and showers and on warm rainy days.

The Bucas Buzz Off Fly/Rain Sheet features a detachable belly pad and an additional neck piece is available to attach to the rug (sold separately here). This hybrid rug is perfectly shaped in a black, waterproof and breathable rip stop nylon, to protect the back, shoulders and hindquarters from the rain.

Research was carried out by scientists in the development of the Bucas Zebra Fly Rugs, that proves that the zebra stripe actually protects the horse as flies are confused by the pattern and thus avoid it.

Technical Information

The Zebra Fly Rug is not just for show...

Following trials in Hungary and Sweden, researchers have discovered that horse flies hate stripes, which is the reason behind Bucas’ latest fly rug design.

Pallets containing vegetable oil were painted different patterns of black and white stripes or all black or all white. These pallets were then placed in a fly-infested field and results showed that there were far more flies in the black painted pallets, fewer in the white but the fewest flies of all were found in the pallets painted with very thin black and white stripes.

Afterwards, researchers carried out a similar trial on model horses covered in glue. At the end of 59 days, the black horse had caught 562 flies, the brown one 334, the white one 22 and the zebra patterned horse had just 8! It is thought that the flies find the stripes confusing and as a result they tend to steer clear.

Based on this research, Bucas has developed a first of its kind fly rug with thin zebra-like stripes, to keep horses free from the stresses of summer flies for good. The unique zebra fly rug, which is the same design as the Bucas standard Buzz Off fly rug was a hug success and following this the Bucas Buzz Off Fly/Rain Sheet was developed. What’s more, there’s the option of a matching fly mask, too.

Without doubt, this clever new Bucas zebra patterned fly rug, which offers added UV protection, is definitely a product your horse would want you to buy.

* Please note: This is a very rough guide and should only be used for first reference. Measurement should be made using the fitting guide below
** If using this size guide based on the height of your horse the variance is the amount of sizes that your horse could vary by depending on the length of their back

Fitting Guide

  1. To find out your horse's rug size measure from the centre of the chest to the rear of the hind leg.
  2. Once you have the measurement refer to the rug sizing guide above (for guide purposes only)
  3. When you receive the rug please ensure you try the rug on over a clean sheet. This keeps the rug clean and hair free allowing for its return if the size is incorrect.
  4. Check that the rug fits correctly - Correctly fitted horse rugs should not be too tight across the shoulder & should reach the base of the horses tail (excluding tail flap)
  5. The rug must fit correctly before leaving the horse unattended. A rug that is too tight may rub and pull across the shoulder. Too big and it may slip and be trodden on.
  6. Please Note: Except in the case of faulty goods we are unable to except returned rugs unless they are clean, hair-free, include all tags and are suitable for re-sale.
