Is there a Fly Mask that actually stays on?

Looking for opinions on fly masks that actually stay on the horse. Can't tell you how many I have lost in the past. Thanks!

I think you just have a tricky horse. I've never lost one. My personal favorite is the Cashel Crusader fly mask, with nose and ears. =]

You can try to find one that has double closure velcro. Another strap of velcro will attach on top of the initial one... like this:

I second the Cashel Crusader!

I use the Justin brand of fly masks.

They're inexpensive, and I haven't had a horse lose one yet.

Even Casper's stays on, and he's a whiz at getting most others off.

I love the Cashel Crusader but I will say that the long nose with ears model is just about impossible to keep on any horse I own.

The double layer Velcro only helps to keep a mask on a horse that is getting it off because a pasture mate is pulling the Velcro open.

OP, I can totally sympathize with you. I have yet to find a mask that my mare can not get off. Even when she is out alone she some how manages to get her fly mask off sometimes.

I just keep a supply on hand so I always have one and every now and again I go and find the lost versions out in the pasture.

I have the Cashel Crusader Long with Ears. I love it! My only complaint with it is the pollen right now. I have to clean the nose part of it daily because of all the pollen that has gathered around her nostrils.

I also got something called War Paint for Rosie. It looks like a deodorant dispenser. I put it under her eyes like a football player does. Amazingly enough, it actually works!

The only time one goes missing is if George pulls Kooter's off.

I usually get the Super Shield with the double locking Velcro. Up here they run about $15-20.
