Fly Sprays??

What do you guys recommend for fly sprays? The stuff we have at the barn for everyone to use is terrible, but there's another brand that my mom and I are probably going to buy, but I was just wondering what you guys buy/make for your horses. Thanks so much!!

I have tryed almost everyone out there and the best one that works is "horse and pony", it is about 13.00 a bottle here it is also waterproof and has sunscreen, so they wont fade their color

I think Fly Spray brands all suck..

Personally I use Avon Skin So Soft. You can either mix it with water to make a spray or merely wipe it on in the morning. Works like a charm. Avon doesn't know why it works so well, but it does! Only problem is that you can only get it from the Avon website or an Avon Dealer.

This is what I use it works really good. Plus it smells good too. =)

Eqyss Marigold Summer Defense fly spray can be used SAFELY and will not burn or sting eyes or open wounds. The non-slip formula can also be used on the saddle area.
This is a long lasting botanical product that creates a shield against pesky flies and bugs. It also reduces bleaching out of the mane, tail and body plus it repels dust and dirt.

Oh I totally forgot about Avon Skin So Soft. That stuff works wonders. When we had our two horses at where we live they were just covered in mosquitos and had tons of little bumps all over them. We tried everything and then heard about Avon Skin So Soft from my uncle who lives in Kentucky. So we tried it and it worked really good. The bugs hate it.

That's what it is! The fly spray that my trainer makes is mostly S.S.S. And with some water, and apple cider vinegar. Not sure what else. But it work WELL!

The only problem I have with skin so soft is it doesnt last long, just a couple of hours then I have to reapply it.Down here in Fla. I can find it in 2 of our feed stores.
