Fitting your Power Stretch Polar Fleece Sleazy – Most horses are very tolerant of having things pulled over their heads. Your slinky should fit smoothly, like swimwear, over the horse’s head and neck, but not too tight to create a rub. Make sure your horse’s eyes are in the middle of the eye holes. If the eyes are too far in one direction, the sleezy could rub your horse’s eyes when he moves or stretches. Then, make sure his ears are also in the middle of the ear holes. If they aren’t, the sleazy could rub his ears and cause a lot of discomfort. After all four holes are in place, adjust the nose band to keep the sleazy in place.
PERSONALIZE your polar fleece horse hoods with your monogram or name, your horse’s name or advertise your farm or ranch. We’ll embroider up to 12 characters per line (including spaces). We recommend selecting a contrasting thread color that will show up. You can also add a Bling Design. Designs start at $5.95.
Because these sleazys are made from 80% nylon/ 20% Lycra, it is machine washable. Air dries fast. Follow our simple Care Instructions for best results.
What Makes Polartec Power Stretch Fleece so Special
Polartec Power Stretch fleece is ideal where maximum freedom of movement and clean profiles are desired. Adaptable to changing weather conditions, Polartec Power Stretch makes an excellent warm outer covering.
Polartec Power Stretch fleece features a body-hugging 4-way stretch that is very breathable. It will keep your horse dry when he sweats and provides warmth without weight. These are the most versatile outdoor fabrics available today. This fabric features a proprietary construction with two unique surfaces: the durable nylon outer layer is wind and abrasion resistant; the soft inner layer pulls moisture away from the skin keeping your horse dry, warm and comfortable.
How does this work? Moisture and high humidity next to the skin cause discomfort. Polartec fleece will keep the skin dry because the fabric is very breathable and does not restrict the movement of moisture vapor. When the fabric’s inner surface touches the horse’s body it will draw off the sweat. Sweat is wicked off the skin to the outside of the fabric, where it spreads rapidly for evaporation. When the sweat reaches the outside of the fabric, it spreads out to many times its original surface area, enabling it to dry at least twice as fast as cotton.
Polartec Power Stretch fleece provides warmth without the weight and bulk of traditional insulating fabrics. It is also wind resistant to reduce the effect of wind chill. When used under looser fitting winter hoods, it prevents rubbing or use it alone on cool spring and fall days. Keep your horse warm and comfortable while protecting and polishing the hair coat.
