What is the difference between Shires Tempest and Highlander?

Ah, the age-old debate! The Shires Tempest is like the reliable old steed you've had for years, while the Highlander is the sprightly young colt. The Highlander boasts features like complete protection from biting insects, thanks to its highly breathable, lightweight polyester 600 denier ripstop fabric. It's like giving your horse a superhero cape! On the other hand, the Tempest has its own set of unique features. But for the sake of this guide, let's just say the Highlander is the James Bond of horse rugs.

Do shire horses need rugs?

Do fish need water? Well, not all of them, but you get the point. Shire horses, with their majestic stature and flowing manes, deserve the best. And yes, that includes rugs. Especially when you have options like the Highlander Original 100 Turnout Combo Rug. It's like a cozy winter sweater, but for horses. And let's be honest, who doesn't love a good sweater?

How often should you wash horse rugs?

Think of it as your favourite pair of jeans. You don't wash them after every wear, but you also don't want them to... well, smell like a barn. Regular washing, especially for rugs like the Highlander Plus Waterproof Fly Rug, ensures they remain effective and comfortable for your horse. And remember, a clean rug is a happy rug!

What weight rug should my horse be wearing?

It's like asking how many layers you should wear in winter. It depends! For cooler days, the Highlander Original 100g Combo turnout rug offers lightweight warmth. But when the temperature drops, you might want to consider the heavyweight Highlander Original 300 Turnout Combo. It's all about keeping your horse snug as a bug in a rug!
