Details

The Bucas Buzz Off Zebra Stripe Fly Sheet has an innovative design based on exciting new research showing that biting insects are confused and thus repelled by alternating stripes! Your horse will be better protected from biting flies and UV rays while showing off his wild side in this fun and functional new sheet!

Why don't Zebras get bitten by flies?

A joint experiment conducted by universities in Hungary and Sweden demonstrated that a zebra's contrasting black and white stripes attract far fewer horseflies than a homogenous black, brown, gray or white coat.

The Buzz Off Full Neck provides full protection of the body, neck and belly. The lightweight fine mesh with high tensile strength makes it suitable for turnout in spring and summer. It provides 80% UV protection, preventing sunburn and coat damage. The Zebra stripes provide an added layer of protection against biting insects without wasteful sprays or expensive chemically treated fabrics. It's nature's way of protecting the zebra and it will work for the domestic horse too!

  • 1000D lightweight polyester mesh
  • Attached neck cover is shaped to cover the entire neck
  • Elastic brow strap keeps the neck cover from slipping
  • The T-loc closure system with padded front panel provides extra protection and room over the shoulders
  • Front panels overlap by several inches to prevent gapping
  • The unique detachable belly pad protects the belly of the horse and also helps to stabilize the sheet position
  • Belly band is wide to cover most of the belly
  • The entire body of the sheet is made from one seamless piece of fabric for superior strength
  • Leg straps and tail cord included

    This sheet runs pretty true to measured size. It may run a bit smaller than fly sheets from competing brands. If your horse measures 75, a 75 should fit. If your horse has a very large build, you may want to order up a size.

    I purchase a Bucas Zebra Fly Sheet. Adams has the best price around. The customer service is wonderful and very fast shipping. It's still winter here in PA so I have not used the blanket. However, I have tried it on my horse and it fits great. It's very light and the coverage is very nice. (Posted on 2/25/2016)
    Love the zebra stripesReview by Nancy from Berlin

    I bought one sheet to try it. My horses are taking turns wearing it and the difference in the amount of stomping and swishing is very noticeable. We live in the bug capital of the world, so any help is great. Hopefully it will hold up well. It doesn't hurt how cute they look in their stripes either. I've ordered a second one!

    Stripes are Good!Review by Laurie from Collegeville

    Our little "farm" has those nasty little midges (fungus gnats) that actually bite. I always thought they were annoying but I didn't realize for a long time how annoying they were to the horses.

    Once I realized that, I went searching for new fly sheets and remembered to look for striped ones, knowing that the recent research indicated that zebra stripes reduced the number of flies actually landing.

    I found this sheet here on Adams Horse Supplies and for the best price. AND free shipping! AND free fly masks to go with! That may be a limited offer.

    Anyway, the fit is great - not on the small side or the large side - exactly what size you order so make sure you order the right size for your horse.

    The fly masks are a bit skimpy in design but are the right size (doesn't run small or large) for what is ordered.

    I love the neck covering and, especially, the belly band.

    All the clips are plastic and are very tight. They can be difficult to undo.

    Great productReview by Ellen from Evergreen

    I heard about the zebra strips to confuse the flies. One of my horses has a severe fly allergy, and gets scabs all over his body. This fly sheet has proven
    to be outstanding in keeping the flies off of him.
    I am very pleased with it. It fits very well, and the neck section is well made
    and closes well.
    I could not be happier. I just ordered another one for my other horse.

    Great coverage and qualityReview by Elisabeth from Southwick

    I have an older Bucas flysheet for my gelding which has held up well, so I decided to get another for my new filly. This one is so much improved! The neck and chest close very securely. Combined with leg straps, tail cord and belly band, this sheet will not come off easily. I didn't realize it came with a belly band until I got it. The extra coverage is great! The material is durable yet lightweight, and people love seeing a zebra in turnout! The free mask that came with it could have more coverage and be more secure, but that's my only issue. This is a superior fly sheet. (Posted on 8/17/2015)
    Well made and fitted fly sheetReview by Julianne from Nebraska

    Wasn't sure what to think at first but I love this and so does my horse. For some reason, he gets more biting flies on him then all the other horses. This is the first year I've seen him happy and mostly fly free. It was also entertaining to watch the other horses try to figure out what/who the funny striped horse was. On occasion, a large green head fly will get under the sheet but he's good at leaning on the fence or a post to kill it. The fit was a little to snug in the shoulders for my TWH but he has been enjoying the spring grass so he's heavier then normal. Only complaint is the black stripes are fading quickly in the field (within one week of using). I am ordering a second one one size bigger for a better fit when he's overindulging.

    Very Happy!Review by SE

    This is by far the best fly sheet I have tried for my super picky, sensitive TB. He adamantly has been protesting field turnout this year due to the excessive bug population but since getting this sheet he happily stays out without a fuss and barely a tail swish at bugs. It fits great, doesn't rub and works perfectly!
    As I would expect, it is a bit warm and he will sweat under it on hot days. (Posted on 7/21/2015)
