This is a bit of a segeway, but it was so windy HERE this weekend, yet we still had some flies. I mixed up some mane-n-tail with a lot of water and cleaned all their legs with it. It took away the horsey smell that was attracking flies, but it didn't blow away in the wind, which is what would have happened had we sprayed Repel-X, instead. Just and FYI.
ALSO, I hate leaving any saddle marks on their coats, so I mix same and scrub it on after a workout where there are saddle marks, with a rubber curry, brush smooth with a dandy brush, and make sure the horse(s) aren't in a draft. I even do this in the winter, but I use it in their stalls. I can always throw a sheet on until dry.
