dangers of concentrated horse fly spray

Heard this from a friend so I did not experience it first hand, but thought I would pass it on anyway. Be sure to shake up the fly spray as you use it. Apparently these people heavily dosed their horses with spray on a mosquito infested trail ride. The horses all came up sick and covered with bumps. The vet said it was due to the concentration at the bottom of the non shaken bottle. Maybe they mixed their own and did not mix it correctly as well.

Huh, I've never heard of such a thing. I habitually always shake all spray bottles before spraying them. But I'm a shaker. Weird little ocd habit I have. I also shake milk when I take it out of the fridge. I dunno why *lol*

Indy- I shake milk too! I'd be willing to bet this was possibly a case of mixing their own fly spray from concentrate and a mixing error was made. The dilution ratio in the average fly spray bottle size shouldn't be enough to make all the horses sick (I could see one, maybe two having an isolated reaction).

Funny, I am an automatic shaker too. Guess that's a good thing sometimes.

This happened to a buddy of mine years ago when she was using the Avon Skin So Soft Oil as fly repellent on her horse and not only did she get the bumps but her white spots got severe sunburn because of the oils

We use a home made fly spray that has SSS in it. My BO said she saw some thing on TV where someone tested it and a bunch of flies came to the SSS, but we have NEVER had that problem. Then again we've never tried JUST SSS as a fly repellent, LOL.

Good point to be aware of the sun magnifying rays of oil. Those pink horse noses can get really burnt. I put desitin on my horse's nose when it gets hot. The sun does get hot for a good 3 weeks a year in Northern Montana. :)
