Another New Design in production & pending design approval by the Intellectual Property Office ready for Winter. We have been testing & trialling this for many months with superb results so far!
After testing a full waterproof hood there was a few elements we just was not completely satisfied with, we therefore came up with a true half/half design.
As our standard Best Seller Stretch hoods are so well loved we didn't want to take the full design away hence using a fully waterproof head and kept the original Horzehood aspect. This means during winter months the lightweight fabric where a full Neck Turnout rug would sit is there, and where the horses head and top half would be open to the elements is kept dry and clean 'without' over heating the horse.
We as owners can have a tendency to over rug our horses or over use heavier gram rugs, therefore we realised using waterproof fabric for the full hood may just be far to warm for the horse.
Keeping horses cool and not over heating is essential for preventing mane loss due to the hair follicles weakening during higher temperatures. Therefore keeping 'lightweight' fabrics as the base of the hood means we have a 'best of both worlds' design.
The 'Dual Horzehood' has been tested for the last 12 months with superb reviewing before bringing to the market. We also sold a batch of Final ProtoType Designs to our customers in September with fantastic feedback.
The design consists of all the loved features of our Best Seller Horzehoods with the stretch fabric for added shine, sensitive areas and helping prevent mane loss during winter months.
The head of the hood is made from a waterproof fabric, enabling the hood to be worn under a full neck Turnout Combo.
The comfort and coolness of our standard lightweight stretch fabric which customers love and prefer for mane's and coat's, but with the added addition of a waterproof head. This should enable the fabric where needed under a rug with the outer head being made from a fully waterproof stretch fabric, enhancing durability and protection
NOTE: Animal welfare is extremely important to us at Horzehoods, we recommend with any products used in paddocks such as ears, headcollars, fly rugs, masks, hoods and so forth that regular checks throughout the turnout duration are taken carefully; along with secure fencing and avoidance of sharp external objects such as barbwire to keep your products as protected as possible from tears which we cannot be held responsible for made by the product wearer. NOT to be used in hot weathers. (Designed for cold weathers and winters).
