What is you opinion on the uses of this product, do you own one, what do you thnk of it??
I don't have a "Sleazy" product, but I do have a slicker hood and love it. It's great for taming manes, keeping horses clean before shows, protecting braids, etc.
Do those protect the shoulders from blanket rubbing?
I have a sleazy and it worked on my horses in the past...but the sleazy I bought doesn't fit the horses I own now....grrrr
So if anyone is interested in a really cool camoflauge sleazy that fit my 16 h TB built Quarter Horse, let me know (I have a stocky QH now!)
I used sleezy but I LOVE Robinhoods... I was against the zipper ones, but after my trainer had me buy one, I never will go back to the pull over heads...
Robinhoods even have shoulder guards for blankets rubbing.
OH and the robinhoods have a middle section that goes between the legs to hold the hood in place, so nice!!!
I've seen them, but I've always wondered how you would get them on your horse!!!
Well the ones without zippers are a little hard. YOU MUST have a calm horse to practice on. The first time I put one on without the zipper my gelding stood in the isle with it covering his whole head and me pulling it on. reminded me of pulling pantyhose on... just keep pulling and nothing changes wink SO I finally got it on.... BUT then I learned that if you scruntch it up and then slide it over the head like you would put a shirt on to NOT mess your hair up, it is a lot easier. The ones without zippers are really a lot more complicated.. wink When you have a zipper you put it over the head on the neck, where the zipper is open and then place it over the head like a hood and put it on that way. WOW, it is really hard to explain over the forum... wink Sorry I am trying. THEN when you get the hair all straight you snap it under their legs, THEN zip it up. You wait to zip to get a good straight zip!
Anyone else have description? If I had digital camera I would take pics on how to do it!! SORRY!
painted love Do you still have the sleazy???
I bought a sleazy shoulder guard for misty, she had been getting really bad rubs from her blankie. I like them but why are they so expensive?
I think the same thing. Lycra is expensive... I tried to look at purchasing the fabric and making myself, almost was more than buying it from the distributors. What you need to do is look for sales!!! If you are not specific on color it helps too!!!
