As they say down here, "That old dog don't hunt.". Flies love to attack wet horses, so I'd think that would be the ideal time to fly spray them and keep the flies from making them utterly miserable.

If a horse is hot then it's pores are open, and indeed more likely to absorb fly spray than if it's cold. It is for this reason that fancy-pants cosmetics sell you a toner to apply before using moisturiser - to close the pores after a hot shower before you clog them up with moisturiser. Anyway - I digress

Absorbing the fly spray into the pores isn't necessarily a problem per se, but is probably not the best thing for a horses comfort and welfare. It might sting a bit!
why would you give your horse a hot bath?most people give them a bath after a long hard ride to cool them down.It doesnt sting them at all,that would ahve to be on a warning label and it isnt.
