So yesterday my mare finally had her baby, unfortunately it had to be during the summer when temperatures get very hot here. I was advised to install misters to help cool the baby for the first few weeks because the baby won't be able to cool himself. So I installed them inside her barn stall and they work great. They keep the area much cooler than the outside and they love spending time in there. The problem is the misters seem to have attracted the flies. I thought they would have helped to keep the flies away but that's not what happened. I've been keeping her stall very clean and she prefers to poop outside anyway.
Does anyone else have this problem and what do you do to keep the flies down?
