Also, if anyone can recommend a fly mask I guess it wouldn't hurt to try it, I think we are in for a buggy year and its started early :(
Many people keep a fly mask on a blind horse 24/7. In the stall and even in the trailer. He wont have any trouble adjusting to the light. He can still see better than you think with a fly mask on-- it keeps the uv rays from harming his eyes actually.. like having sunglasses on.
A fly mask from your local feed store will work just fine. To me a flymask is a fly mask-- if it keeps the flys off its doin a heck of a job, lol.
