Wire Mesh Fly Masks?

I was looking for fly masks with the funny faces on them (let me know if you know where I can get em!) and came across this article

How to Make Your Own Fly Mask for Horses | eHow.com

Would you do this? I don't think I would.. Wire mesh around a horse's eyes? Wire mesh with exposed edges?
Plus, correct me if I'm wrong, but she says not to let it touch the horse's skin. Well um, won't the flies just bypass this? I think I'm going to comment and tell her that that could be very dangerous..

Not to mention, where is there a part of the halter that goes across the forehead?

Wow, that is some pretty scary advice.

Linky to fun fly masks

Edit to add: Darn it the link does not take you right to fly masks. Just do a search for fly masks and they will come up.

That's one of the most moronic and dangerous things I've ever heard.

You can BUY fly masks for about $10.00, so why would you want to make one made out of wire mesh?

No, that's not an eye accident waiting to happen, is it? Gaahhh!

Stupid should hurt. Very, very badly.

Good point on the price, SR. I bet the wire mesh would cost more than buying an inexpensive mask.

Wow! That "how to" definitely deserves to be mentioned at the Fugly Horse of the Day. I'm just completely speechless. Wire mesh! Unbelievable!

The worst thing is there are ALWAYS idiots out there who will try to make it.

Oh HELL no!!! I can remember re-screening some of my windows and my fingers ended up all kinds of cut up from the wire mesh. Why not just make one of these () with double edged razor blades tied at the bottom?
