I have had my Cashels with the long nose for a while. Very little issue.

Well, my big stinker figured out how to take his off, too! So I now put it on then put a breakaway halter on over it. So far it's working, he hasn't taken it off in several days and has not even put any more holes in it. Keeping my fingers crossed!

I have one on my paint for several years. So far so good. I don't get one with ears though - she gets rid of it.

I have used the Cashel Long Nose/with Ears style on all of my horses for many years and have never had any problems with them. I think they are great quality fly masks, all of mine have been very durable and lasted for many seasons. They seem to be comfortable for my horses to wear for all day turnout, they have never had any rubs or other issues from wearing them. They keep my chestnut, who has a white stripe and pink on his nose, from getting a sunburn. I prefer to use a fly mask with ears to keep the blackflies and gnats and all the small biting flies out of my horses ears.

Only very occasionally have they ever come off during turnout, I suspect after a very good roll in a very muddy area, as that is where I found them covered in mud where they have obviously rolled in. I never fasten the velcro tightly, if I had of fastened the velcro a bit tighter they may not have come off, however, they usually stay on for most rolling.

Bought one and it lasted all of 12 hours before some jerk horse broke it.

I have a long nose and a regular. I would never buy the long nose again. Though it offers protection from flies on the nose, dirt tends to build up in a circle around the nostrils, making the actual nostrils fill with dirt. I cut one of the long noses off, but left one on as my pony has head shaking syndrome and the nose peice helps with that.

I have used these for several years, one of my mares however gets it off very quickly, she is just so sure that she doesn't need it. Good quality, but pricey.
