Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses began in 1986 at a Quarterhorse ranch in Hood River, Oregon. The original patented design was initially used on show horses as a grooming aid. Coarse winter coats were prevented by using the stretch hoods alone during the day and as an undergarment for heavier hoods at night. Compared to the coarse and bulky hoods commonly used, these snug fitting stretch hoods looked unusually stylish and since they doubled as a night undergarment the name "Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses" was born. Since it was purchased in 1992, Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses™ has been continually improving and expanding its product selection. The appeal caught on and the demand has grown steadily for 15 years now. Sleazy Sleepwear for Horses has become the most recognized stretch garment for horses in the horses apparel industry. Today the term "Sleazy" or "Sleazy Sleeper" used as a name identifies the original brand and the style of garment as well all over the country. Pet horses in general and especially show horses receive enormous amounts of pampering and grooming. The development of the stretch hood was an innovative way to help keep the horse clean and comfortable and ready for riding - just for fun or for the demands of the show ring.
