    Sorry to say - your horse is to blame too. The fly mask can't be taken off without his participation in the game.

    Are you sure he isn't taking it off and playing with it himself? And tossing it in the neighbors pen?

    We have seen the neighbor horse yank on it until its off. There are bite marks where she rips at the seams :(
    Yes, you are right, he should probably back up and not allow her to do this, but who knows, maybe he wnats it off?!

    If you're willing to try more kinds of masks, I'd recommend the Horse Sense brand. My friend uses them and loves them. They were designed by a woman who was sick of the masks she was using falling apart. They have the velcro closures and are heavy-duty. Nothing fancy but "smart". I did a quick search and found them for sale at www.horsesuppliesusa.com

    It sounds like the safest option here, is to not put a mask on your horse; I have my mare on Apple Cider Vinegar, and there is a HUGE difference in how many bugs chew on her compared to the other horses, who are not on the ACV...I put about two tablespoons in her pellets each morning. She might have a few bugs on her, when the other horses will have tons of them bothering them. Worth a shot, atleast. It's cheap, and it works, pretty well.
