Do you prefer to use fly masks with or without ears? I use one on my paint because he has a mostly white face and light blue eyes and I thought this would help shield his face and eyes from some of the sun's glare. The problem is he seems to rip the masks up within a few days. He always rips the ears and top part. I am wondering of the earless ones would last longer perhaps? The other question I have is do any of you ride with the fly masks on? On really sunny days I would think the mask would act like sunglasses and be easier for his light blue eyes.
