No matter how much fly spray, masks, sheets, time of day or night or fans bugs are still an issue probably more so in hot climates like Florida.
You expect me to believe you were just trying to educate me on the purpose of a horse's tail?
If you were, you would have said something more neutral, like "Horses use their tails to swish flies." Not "I would rather have a thin tail to swish flies than no tail :("
It's quite obvious that you're insinuating that my horse is unhappy
with what I did to her tail. That has everything to do with poor care.
I'm still failing understand why people who live in Iowa and Ohio are claiming to know more about the bugs at MY BARN than I do...
Yes, there are still SOME flies that manage to find a place to land on her. Her fly sheet and fly mask make it impossible for them to land anywhere but her legs. She can stomp her legs - she doesn't need to swish them with her tail. Are you really concerned about a few flies on my horse's legs, or are you just trying to pick a fight? Perhaps you should focus on all the horses starving to death in BYB's yards and stop wasting your time complaining about my horse - who is very obviously (to everyone but yourself) well cared for.
