I'm trying to find some good fly masks. We haven't had them in years because our horses used to chew them off the others' faces, and it was more cost-efficient to buy some good fly spray than to replace 4 fly masks a month...
Since we haven't had them in a really long time, I'm not familiar with the brands and qualities of the brands, etc.. At first I was just going to buy some and hope for the best, maybe take a couple money hits, and then I remembered... I HAVE A FORUM!
So, my horse-owning friends, what fly mask do you have? What brand do you like the most? Are there brands I should stay away from?
I've seen fly masks with ears and extended nose pieces, so what are your thoughts on them? I figure the more protection the better, but I'd still love to hear others thoughts who have had these.
Our horses are also all in one area together, so I need fly masks that are sturdy. Especially because there's a 2 year old filly who likes to nibble and a gelding who could go blind and deaf and not notice as long as he could taste... (It's his go-to sense: he has to make SURE it's not actually food disguised as my tack.)
I don't think there are any completely teeth-proof materials, but I'd still like to give a good, sturdy material at least a try.
Oh, and the last question: How much do they cost? Less money is better, but I'd rather have quality if it comes down to it.
Thanks for helping!
