It is reported that the following antigas equipment is available for the
protection of horses in the German Army:
(1) A horse gas mask, with two containers, model 41. This protects
horses and mules against all gases affecting the respiratory organs. The life of
the container is several hours, depending on the concentration of gas and the
nature of the animal's work. The containers can be readily changed.
(2) A pair of horse goggles, model 41, to be worn with the mask to
protect the eyes from spray.
(3) A set of hoof covers, model 41, in three sizes, to protect the lower
part of the leg on contaminated ground. The front leg covers are shorter than
the hind ones.
(4) A supply of horse decontamination material.
All of the above articles are carried in one special carrier.
