Using "Off" on Horses??

Not sure where to put this but can you put the mosquito repellent "off" or "cutter" on horses? I've tried SO many different mosquito repellents for horses but nothing works. I'd appreciate quick replies because for the meantime my poor horses are stomping, swishing, and shaking in attempt to get the skeeters off of them!

We had a local vet tell us that using Off is just fine. She uses it on her own horses! Just wouldn't get it in their face or water or anything. :)

Great thanks! Anyone else have a different insight?

I would say OFF is fine, never had any problems with it before on my horse or dog and I've seen a lot of reputable horse people use it. Just horses tend to not like the aerosol can sound.

I just ran out and put some cutter on the two mares who were still going crazy after being coated with mosquito/fly repellent for horses. They seem to be doing better now ;) Neither minded the sound a bit.

I am going to have to try this! I've been buying the super expensive fly sprays and none of them have been working for my guy. He's been going crazy about the mosquitoes!

I use Off and Cutter on Sunny and the other horses. No issues.
