I've been working with my 5 year old mare on getting a bath (And Today was the first time we used the hose AND soap!! ;D) but there are so many horse flies around her that it's hard for her to focus and listen. They range from small, greenish looking ones, to the very Large black ones that dive-bomb her.I have to horses, my 5 year old and my 27 year old pony; but for some reason they hardly ever go for my pony. Why is that and is there anything I could do to help them out??
**Side notes** I do spray them with fly spray, it's a good brand and does help to repel flies.-- I feel like the large horse flies only appear when I bring the hose out to work with my horse. You can hear them buzzing around and they will actually wait until we're done working before attacking her.
