BRAND: Sleek n’ Slinky
A slinky will keep them clean overnight for show day, and shavings out of their braids. Helps keep frizz down on the braids. For indoor use.
-Make nose band, and belly band snug, so it doesn’t ride up. If nose band is too loose, can roll it up *See photo*.
-Make sure there’s nothing in the stall that it can get caught on. Tape up hooks on water bucket handle.
-Extra large eye holes: if a slinky shifts, it can possibly end up covering up their eyes overnight until someone arrives in the morning. Extra large eye holes helps reduce/prevent material from covering their eyes in case it shifts. Please make sure the nose band, and back belly band are snug, to avoid shifting.
-Extra long backs: short backs might slip over the withers, and onto the neck, when the horse bends down to eat. This also causes rubbing on the braids. Can’t go wrong with longer backs.
-Adjustable nose band to help reduce/prevent shifting
-Heavy duty belly band clip (no velcro). *If your clip sits close to the end, tie a knot to help prevent it from slipping off 🪢
-Yoke (strap between front legs)
-Heavy duty zipper makes it easy to go on. *The zipper is under warranty.
If you have any problems, please message me, so I can either:
-mail a new pull piece

“ I love my slinky from Katie’s!!”
Melissa A. OWNER OF KATIE’S HORSE CARE SUPPLY & BRAIDER: I use these slinkies quite often- a lot of my braiding clients have them. And I have a personal collection of 10 of these slinkies, that I loan out all the time when my braiding clients don’t have one. I absolutely love the fit, and how easily they go on. As a braider, we love slinkies that have zippers.
