    I know this is delayed, but I just got a couple "Duramask" brand flymasks for my girls and so far they've been great.
    They've worn them about 15hrs/day for the last week and no rubs yet, even on my foster who has never worn a flymask before this. The girls also haven't been able to remove them yet so that's good too!
    They're made out of the same type of sturdy material that Kensingtons are made of as well!
    I paid $15 per mask but it looks like you can get them cheaper on Amazon.
    Just thought I'd let you know, in case you ever want another option. :)

    Well, I'm definitely open to alternatives, lol- I have high hopes for the Cashels since they have great reviews from everyone, but you never know, Geronimo is not only a determined monster who wants to put everything in his mouth but one with a 2 year old accomplice... So if it's of the same durable material and is cheaper (I paid 25-30 for the masks I ordered, and they're on sale right now), I'm listening, lol. Thanks!

    Cashel all the way! =]

    Cashel is what we have and they have lasted over 3 years now.

    I have one of those super masks, googling it they seem to be made by Farnam.
    My old horse wore the same one for 4 years, an I just put it on my new mare. Not bad for a mask that I think didn't even cost $20.

    Cashel is the bomb! Those masks are indestructible, comfortable, and relatively cheap.

    The Cashels are working great, my sister also got two for her horses, so we now have an army of Cashel-wearing beasts... I have pictures of my boys rocking their masks but I can't get them on the computer yet, my sister lost the cord I need, lol. But so far, I'm liking this brand! I still chuckle when I see the ears, though...

    And kitten-val, you're right, lol- the ears make them much easier to slip off. It's only happened a couple times, if I have to I'll just snip them off. It won't be quite as amusing to see the horses with their masks on, but I won't have to run around a couple of acres looking for a mask, lol.
    kitten_Val and Wallaby like this.

    The tears are cause by small flies that go after the inner eyelid. If the mask is made of Textilene then it will be sturdy material and will remain away from the horse's eyes. I find with the masks that small insects can get in between the jaw bones so I slather petroleum jelly there.
