My favorite fly spray!
The only downside is that it has a strong smell, and attracts dirt because its oil based.

I really enjoyed it the first two years, but this past year its simply not cutting it. It lasts a hour or so and the flies are back. Im thinking the flies/horses are getting accustomed to it (I can't think of the right word), and its time for a change. It does smell strong, but I enjoy the smell, and it does attract dirt, lots of dirt. Dirt everywhere. And it does make them quite shiny.

I use it and like it, but agree with the dirt problem.

I've tried so many other sprays, but they just don't seem as effective.

It's meant to also be used for grooming.

It works wonders for me but it's so expensiveee. I use cheapy fly spray every day and only use that on occasions.

Both of mine did too, it was terrible- especially on the underside of their bellies. It upset one of them so much, she was afraid of the spray bottle for the rest of the summer, so be careful!

Thirding or fourthing you to spray a test area. :( My mare has sensitive skin, so anything by that brand, it seems, will cause her to break out in these huge welts and have super tender skin. I'd love to use it though. I hear good things about it.

It's my favorite fly spray! I like the smell and it works well on our flies.

I've never had a horse have a reaction to it (but it's good to know that can happen.)

It's a good value for the money (I get it online for about $12 a bottle). Anything cheaper that this just doesn't seem to repel flies for me. I've also had good luck with Mesquito Halt. There are a lot of good fly sprays if you can spend a lot. But I really don't want to spend $18-$20 or more a bottle for fly spray. But I've found most anything in that upper price range works well.

Pyrhanna is like $20 fly spray in a $12 price range. Actually, our local feed stores DO charge that much for it.

What cheapy sprays do you use? Around here Pyranha's one of the cheapest.

I agree with the oil based version attracting dirt! They have a new water-based version in a blue bottle that you (supposedly) apply every 14 days. I'm going to give it a try so I'll let you know. The only down side is by the end of the fly season they will get really itchy, just need a good scrubbing bath to remove all the oil and trapped dirt.
