I've brought horses in with fly sheets on, and they come off with flies stuck underneith. I've seen horses with bumps all over their bodies *where the fly sheet lays* due to insect bites.
It's worth a try since it is free, but I personally don't waste my money on fly sheets. They are more hassle than good in my opinoin.
Cute colors though!
Why are you asking for an opinion if you have already know you are getting one?
I have to agree with the above post. I have never really understood the purpose of them either. The most important areas where the flies DO go all the time are not covered. They end up being expensive to buy, use and replace, fix if you do get one. I have always spent my money on the sprays instead of the fly sheets.
I find the one you sent a link for to be extremely expensive.
