We recommend our Tuff Stuff Sleezy made from Spandura, the strongest stretch fabric available. Because this fabric is heavier, it will be warmer than a regular sleezy. We do recommend that you provide your horse a cool area on exceptionally hot days, whether wearing a hood or not. If there are things in your pasture that your horse can get it caught on, it will tear. Also it will not be impervious to barbed wire, or shrubbery with long thorns, or a bored or determined horse. However, we understand that a lot of people board their horses and do not have control over their horse’s environment, this is why we offer a in-house repair service at a nominal cost to you.
