Superior Fly Protection with the Bucas Buzz-Off X

The Bucas Buzz-Off X Fly Rug is part of the innovative X Range by Bucas, designed with the needs of horses and their owners in mind. This specially developed fly rug is crafted from an extra-deep lightweight mesh fabric, which not only blocks out flies but also shields horses from the harmful effects of the sun. This dual functionality is particularly beneficial as it helps to prevent sun bleaching of the horse’s coat, keeping it vibrant and healthy throughout the summer months.

Extra-Deep Mesh Fabric for Enhanced Protection

One of the standout features of the Buzz-Off X Fly Rug is its extra-deep sides. This design element is not just for aesthetic appeal; it plays a crucial role in enhancing the rug’s protective capabilities. The extra-deep mesh fabric drapes down to cover more of the horse’s body, including the legs. This comprehensive coverage is essential in keeping flies at bay and preventing them from attacking the horse’s lower body, a common area where flies tend to congregate.

The deep sides also facilitate better air circulation around the horse’s legs, ensuring that they remain cool and comfortable even on the hottest days. This is particularly important for horses that are prone to overheating or those that spend extended periods in the paddock.


Unique Belly Wrap for Sensitive Area Protection

Flies are notorious for targeting the sensitive underbelly of horses, causing considerable irritation. The Buzz-Off X Fly Rug addresses this issue with its unique belly wrap. Secured with three surcingles, the belly wrap ensures that this vulnerable area is well-protected from flies. This thoughtful design feature is a testament to Bucas’s commitment to horse comfort and well-being.

Integrated Headpiece for Stability and Versatility

The Buzz-Off X Fly Rug also features an integrated headpiece/cap, designed to keep the neck of the rug securely in place. This is especially useful when the horse is turned out in the paddock and engaged in various activities. The integrated cap ensures that the neck of the rug does not slip or move out of position, providing consistent protection throughout the day.

Moreover, the design of the integrated head piece leaves the horse’s ears free, catering to those horses who do not like their ears covered. For owners who prefer to use a fly mask, the Buzz-Off X Fly Rug offers the flexibility to do so, making it a versatile option suitable for a variety of preferences.

The Benefits of UV Protection

In addition to fly protection, the Bucas Buzz-Off X Fly Rug offers excellent UV protection of over 70%. Prolonged exposure to the sun can lead to sunburn and skin damage in horses, much like it does in humans. The lightweight mesh fabric of the Buzz-Off X Fly Rug effectively blocks harmful UV rays, safeguarding the horse’s skin from sunburn and other UV-related damage. This is particularly beneficial for horses with lighter coats, which are more susceptible to sunburn.

Comfort and Durability

Comfort is a key consideration in the design of the Buzz-Off X Fly Rug. The lightweight mesh fabric is breathable, ensuring that the horse remains cool and comfortable even in warm weather. The deep sides and secure belly wrap provide a snug yet non-restrictive fit, allowing the horse to move freely without any discomfort.

Durability is another hallmark of Bucas products, and the Buzz-Off X Fly Rug is no exception. The high-quality materials and robust construction ensure that the rug can withstand the rigours of daily use, providing long-lasting protection for your horse.

The Bucas Buzz-Off X Fly Rug is a must-have for horse and pony owners seeking reliable and effective fly protection. Its innovative design, combining extra-deep mesh fabric, a unique belly wrap, and an integrated headpiece/cap, offers unparalleled protection and comfort. The added benefit of UV protection makes it an indispensable tool for maintaining your horse’s health and well-being during the summer months.

Invest in the Bucas Buzz-Off X Fly Rug and give your horse the ultimate defence against flies and sun exposure. Your horse will thank you for it with a happy, stress-free summer.
