We also add about a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar in their feed. Seems to help with the flies, haven't used much fly spray yet this year.

Can I use just regular garlic powder from the store? How much should I give her? A teaspoon once a day?

It works wonders. Both my girls are on it because it is the only thing that works. Fly spray never works for me. The only down side is that when you clean their stalls you can really smell the garlic. It helps alot though. The flys rarely ever bother them now.

It is not just a horse,
It is the one thing that keeps me from being just a girl
