My horses and I love this fly mask. Horses are notoriously bothered by flies all the time, especially when it is hot and humid. This mask keeps the flies out of their eyes and keeps them from having to rub their faces against their legs or other body parts to get rid of those aggravating, annoying flies!!! Prior to Farnam masks, years ago, I even had horses that wore the hair off the skin around their eyes because of the ceaseless aggravation. A lady in Gilbert AZ invented these and sold the patent to Farnam. It has been a happy day for horses ever since. I get the shimmer silver one for my Dapple Grey Gelding. We are best buds and this has helped cement the friendship. I get some color for each of my 3 horeses and wash them about every two weeks. The flies do lay their eggs in the masks and dirt can accummulate in the little mesh holes, but washing, either in the bucket with a little soap or in the washer, cleans them up. My horse has thanked me ever sice they came out and he looks especially handsome in the silver.Best Friends is also asking for these as gifts for their animals to keep the flies off. Just go to Best Friends on Goggle for the address. Donations are a tax write off. So for your horses and for the less fortunate, absolutly, indubitably, always, get these. It saves your horse and makes his temperament so much sweeter, which makes riding so much easier and more fun.These also help keep lighter colored horses from getting sunburn on their faces. So, by all means, get them. Mine last for 3 or 4 years, so it is definitely a good buy. A huge recommendation for these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!My boy, "MY QUICK CAT" gets the silver. Ride on!
