Just wanted to throw this out there, if anyone has been considering the new Amigo bug buster. My show horse is outside all day, and is EXTREMELY buggy. Cannot stand bugs on him, not an ounce, and will stomp his hooves to smithereens. Also note that I live right next to wetlands on a piece of property that has not been lived on for 20 years! (this is our second year being here). So we have some CRAZY bugs. So I got him the Amigo bug buster, and I just put it on... what a DIFFERENCE! He isn't stamping, is enjoying his food... with NO fly spray on. The Bug buster is pricey (150$), but seeing as it's the only way to keep him welt-free for the show season... I am in LOVE. If anyone was wondering if it was worth the price--YES! OMG, yes.
For me, it ran big. I have the amigo heavy weight turnout in size 78 for my 15.1 paint, and I got him the 78 fly sheet... nooo go, lol! I returned it and got the 75, and It fits him nice. I like it because it's white, light, and mainly--AIRY. I'll go take a picture of him, lol!
I know what you mean.. it helps create a barrier from the sun directly onto their hair, and it's white AND protects him from UV rays, which not all fly sheets do. I don't know why the rambo fly sheet is the same price, but doesn't have the 'buzz block' technology. Lol
Aren't fly sheets the best invention?? My horse is known for going lame stomping at the flies so I just got the Rambo fly sheet today for him and I'm in love! Immediately when I put it on the flies were gone it was amazing.
