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!

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

Hmmm, I might have to look into trying this apple cider vinegar system!!
