Fly Free Zone - Collar

Hello,
Does anybody knows the "Fly Free Zone" Collar?

"The Fly Free Zone™ Horse Collar protects your horse from pesky flies and disease – transmitting gnats and mosquitoes. It creates an insect-free zone around your horse's face and neck, and is adjustable to prevent overtightening."

Does anyone make experiences with this collar? I'm really interested to hear them ...

Thanks,
Sady

I've seen them too and wondered if they broke easy. They would be bad if they got hung up on something and didn't break.
I'll be interested to hear any reviews on this too.

I was actually thinking about ordering the set that goes around their legs. Toby has SO many flies on him. They seem to pick on him more than any other horse there. When I bring him in to groom him, he actually has blood stains running down his legs.

I spray him with fly spray every day - but it doesnt seem to help the poor guy.

I've never used the collar around the neck, but I used the feet collars and I thought it worked great. They werent stomping that much and they didnt have those nasty swarms. They stayed on for along time too, they velcro, they are like a citronella type stuff. I really like it.

Ride more, worry less.

I went back to my old standby, apple cider vinagar. The flys have been tormenting the dogs, didn't have anything but horse spray so sprayed them all down. Finished the bottle off on the horses. It works ok for some flys. Especially the biting ones that around here in the spring.
