Vidaloco, my dad got something like that once for my horse. It was for like cattle and other livestock, too, and it worked really well!! hahaha, I don't remember what it was, though, lol, and it didn't smell all that great. :roll:

I like the Ultra Shield stuff myself. It really works for my horse...

I also did try the homemade recipe with the white vinegar and dawn soap. That seems to work.... but it leaves yucky residue and it smells.. I l also noticed, it might make your horse's hair come out .....I'm not sure if that's from it (the flyspray) or from my horse's legs being swollen, or from something else. I just thought I'd say it. That's just my experience, so use at your own risk. Also, you have to use ALOT and it only lasts a day.

I just found out recently that my horse is allergic to fly bites....a good spray is a must for me now

Well every night our horses get a small amount of sweet feed and we put about half a shot glass of Apple Cider Vinegar in their feed. It has not gotten rid of ALL the flies (we live on a cattle ranch) but we have noticed a lot less!

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

My guys get 3 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in their am & pm feed. The ticks, house flies and misquitoes are leaving them alone and the bugs aren't in the barn as bad either. Now if I could just find something to put an end to those big green eyed horse flies
