The reason for the Zebra Print...

Dress your horse up like a zebra this summer and keep him fly-free. 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 range of fly protection for your horse.

    Professional Opinion

    ''The mystery of how the zebra got its stripes might have been solved: researchers say the pattern appears to confuse flies, discouraging them from touching down for a quick bite.''
