    Anyone used this fly blanket from Jeffers?

    I know it isn't fly season, but I'm thinking ahead. We get mosquitoes really bad in the summer time here, so I want to get a fly blanket for Angel and Jinxx. I've tried the cashel fly blanket and one from weaver. The cashel didn't hold up and ripped within a month of having it (not horses fault) and the weaver never stayed in place and slipped ever where. I found this one on Jeffers for a reasonable price (since I would have to buy 2.) So I was wondering if anyone has had any experience or knows if this one is of any quality? If not any suggestions?

    There's a fabric called Textilene and that is about the toughest for fly sheets. I think Baker makes them. Mosquitoes seem to go where blankets don't offer protection so a good supply of petroleum jelly (Vaseline or house brand) offers the horse relief. Since horses raise the tail as they walk, mosquitoes go under there and feast. Next thing you know, horse's tail is a mess. The horse is trying to rub where it's itchy but can't because it's on the underside. Slather jelly under there and don't be stingey. Also rub it into the head of the tail where the hair is shorter. Mosquitoes dine underneath, especially between the hind legs so that's another area to goo up, doing either the sheat or teats. This needs to be refreshed about every three or four days. For these areas it's much better than sprays and non toxic.
