Haha, yeah he had a regular fly sheet, but Amigo came out with this 'buzz block' thing where the fabric has bug repellent IN it. It's awesome! lol

I prefer Kensington to any other blanket or fly sheet there is. They are made of textaline, and covered with a natural fly repellent. They are a little pricy, but the most important thing is that they are flame ******ant. There is a story on Kensington's web page about a horse caught in a horrible fire. The face and head were burned severily, but where the sheet was covering was COMPLETELY burn free. It totally amazed me and after trying rambo, amigo, and bucas, I know that kensington is truly the best company. My horse has the kensington bug eye fly mask that is in perfect conditiion after 2 seasons and he lives in pasture 24/7. I just ordered the fly sheet and fly boots, and I can hardly wait for them to get in. I am glad because there are a lot of fires in my area, and I don't want him to be at risk.

(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.
Yikes. I love my horses but spending that kind of money on a spray? I think not. I think fly sheets as being a much better long term solution instead of investing in such a pricey and temporary solution and I would know we live in mosquito alley.

Nono, it's not a spray. :) The fly sheet has bug repellent infused in it; not to mention it's a nice fly sheet with a lot of coverage anyway, and has UV protection.
I couldn't pay that much for a spray either. :)
