by flies. Put roll-on fly protection
on the face area around the
eyes, nostrils, muzzle and
ears. Use spray on your horse’s
body, including the legs and
underbelly. When using sprays,
give the area a light but thorough
coating rather than just a quick
spritz. If you don’t put enough
on, the product won’t work.

with fly masks, flysheets and
Fly mask. Flies are
notorious for feeding on the
mucus in your horse’s eyes,
causing irritation and potentially
spreading disease. A fly mask
keeps flies from getting into your
horse’s eyes, and a mask with
attached ear covers can also keep
biting gnats away.
Fly sheet. A fly sheet is
made of light mesh that prevents
flies from landing directly on
your horse. It protects his chest,
back, sides and hindquarters
from biting flies. Add mesh
leg wraps to protect the lower
legs, and flies will have a hard
time finding a place to bite
By using this three-pronged
approach, you can make plenty of
headway in the war against flies.
While you’ll never get rid of every
single fly, you can certainly make
a di;erence. HI
