Why did you choose this?
My horses stay out and we usually do not use halters. If we do, we use breakaway halters. Will this "CatchMask" break away if needed?
Best Answer: I am with you - do not leave halters on and horses are in pasture 24/7. First the horses usually don't get these off but they sometimes do which tells me that in a pinch, it would come off. I do not think it would break however, rather that it would just pull off. Maybe the velcro would give? Otherwise, love this because of the durability and coverage and that unlike the others, they rarely pull these off one another - might be the color??? So I believe they are safe in the way halters are not. Hope that helps. Fyi the catch part where you would put the rope clip if you used it for that (I don't) is not hard but not easy either. Very thick at the spot.
Does this mask provide any UV protection from the sun?
Best Answer: Yes this works great!! You will need to replace in about 2 yrs as the Velcro starts to ware down by then and the seam on nose starts getting dangling strings and falls apart slowly. It is well worth the money. We use it on our horse with blue eyes and bald face.
Is the velcro the doubled kind like on the Farnam SuperMask where the soft side is between 2 of the crunchy hard velcro sides? Or is it the normal velcro that is soft on 1 side and crunch hard on the other?
Best Answer: From your description it seems like the SuperMask. The middle velcro is soft with the scratchy stuff on each side. It does a good job of staying fastened and doesn't get pulled off near as easily as other fly masks I have used.
