New Hat :)

I bought my boy this fly mask :) the bugs are really annoying him at the moment, so much so that he has made his ears bleed from rubbing them so much. He has aural plaques that attract flies and just making it worse for him :( so to make him feel better...

i think he will look propper sexy in it ;) Ill get some pictures of him wearing it when it gets here

I dunno we'll have to find out, could be funny, i dont think he will mind. Proably better for him than scratching his ears on the side of the barn :s

The first time I tried to put a bonnet on my horse, he went nuts, but I just keep working on it and it was on him with no issues in two days. Not he doesn't even look at it.

The bugs here really aren't too bad. Fly masks aren't really necessary, unless some people are real picky about them being on. As for the ears, I always see little nats in them so before it gets real hot (which hopefully that will be soon) I douse their ears in fly spray. I also spray their whole bodies, but I really make sure I get their ears and their face. I'm also out there a lot spraying them down to make sure those little ******* bugs arn't all over them.
