Natural Fly Repellant?!?!

Okay, so ever since we put Buck, the paint, up with William and Sambo in the big pasture, they've been rubbing on Pine trees, and getting the sap all over their faces (which looks awful on Buck's light gray face ). Is Pine sap a natural fly repellant? It seems to work, if so.....I was just trying to get to the reason, but I know that with horses, some things don't have a reason .

It could be. I've noticed flies never get on my pine trees.

Okay, got a answer from the same question from a guy who owns a bunch of pack horses: tarweed, he said. Which makes sense, since it's all over Sam's white socks! So, It's Tarweed. Strange.......
