Horseware Rhino® Wug Turnout Blanket 370g
Your horse will hug you for his Wug!
The Rhino® Wug waterproof turnout blanket has a unique neck design for horse owners that want more protection without using a neck cover. The Wug design produces a collar or scarf like effect, which reduces heat loss and prevents rain and snow from entering the front of the rug and running down the back. The high cut neck design also eliminates unnecessary pressure on the withers. The Rhino® Wug has a durable outer shell of 1000 Denier Polypropylene and a coat polishing polyester lining. The tough Polypropylene is 50 to 100% stronger than the coated Polyester used in the majority of turnouts. Should the outer layer become damaged the inner waterproof and breathable barrier remains intact because the AquaTrans™ coating is applied to the barrier layer not the outer layer. Below the waterproof barrier is the Thermobonded fiberfill which retains extra loft, keeping your horse warmer longer. The Rhino® Wug features Horseware's Patented Front Leg Arch™, no slip design with two belly surcingles and a tail cord to keep this durable and well fit turnout in place. Horseware® understands the horse's physique so well that their unique cuts and designs allow the blanket to correct itself even after a horse lays down and rolls. Horseware's Patented Front Leg Arch™ allows freedom of forward motion and prevents extra fabric from gathering around your horse's legs as they move around. The patented 'V' Front closure systems is easy to use and allows the blanket to be carried on top of the shoulder rather than the point of the shoulder, therefore allowing the blanket to move as the horse moves.
Horseware® Ireland's Rhino® blankets are constructed of the highest quality materials and therefore will outlast other blankets on the market. When you buy a Rhino® you can be assured that you are purchasing a blanket that with proper care will last and look new, year after year.

Fitting Your Horse's Blanket
The fit of your blanket is extremely important to the comfort of your horse. An improperly fitted blanket can cause rubbing and slippage. Horseware® blankets are euro-cut and the sizes do not run the same as other manufacturers' blankets. To find out what size Rhino® blanket your horse needs, measure the distance from the center of the chest to the center of the tail. Horseware® Rhino® blankets are sized in three-inch increments, so you will need to choose the closest size available. *Wug sizing runs small due to the fabric up on the neck.
Care Of Your Horse's Blanket
To keep your blanket as comfortable as possible for your horse and to maximize the blanket's life, we recommend that you clean your blanket annually. First, remove excess dirt from the outside of the blanket with a brush and hose. The blanket can then be washed either by hand, or on a delicate cycle with cool water in a commercial washer. Use only very mild soap. When the blanket has been washed, allow to drip dry and ensure that the blanket is thoroughly dry before storage. Do not put your horse's blanket in the dryer or wash with hot water. Do not store your horse's blanket if damp or wet. This will damage the waterproof coating and void any warranties.
