(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.
