Smile allergic to all equine sprays

Hello,
My horse seems to be allergic to all the equine sprays. Show Sheen, all the fly sprays we have tried, so far all we have found she is not allergic to is Marigold. Any suggestions? The fly spray is the biggest problem. They eat her alive even through the fly sheet. Thank you.

What about skin so soft? I have family members who are very, very sensitive to virtually all mosquito repellents but can use the unscented skin so soft.

skin so soft

I was kind of leary about the skin so soft. I have heard good and bad about using it. I have tried it on myself and the kids and it didn't work well for us so not so keen on using it on the horse, but if it was a last resort I would try a small spot on her to see if she was allergic to it first. Anything would be better than being eaten alive. Thank you for the suggestion.

I absolutely love this stuff. I went from having a horse with no tail as he would scratch it off and just be miserable, to having a horse that I haven't even put a fly sheet or mask on yet this year. I feed it from Spring to Fall.

I really can't say enough good things about it.

have you tried vinegar? I have been feeding my horses apple cider vinegar (have to use the all natural type), and I spray everything down (horses included) with plain white vinegar (much cheaper).

Keep the horse in during the day and out after dark.

Have you tried this one? You mentioned she is not allergic to Marigold -- so this might be a good option -- it worked great on our horses and flies here are terrible.

Can be quite pricey depending on where you get it -- but definitely works. We also had good luck with Vinegar and Garlic -- 1 throw 3 cloves of garlic in the blender add about 2 cups of vinegar and mix then put in your regular sized spray bottle and top up with water works great but does not last very long.

I would try mouthwash mixed with water in a spray bottle! It works wonders on the bugs! Especially around the tail and dock areas.
