+1 on the WipeII. My boy has thin skin and has broken out in hives before from sprays, so I have to be pretty careful what I use. The WipeII doesn't bother him, lasts for a full day, and smells good. It can be hard to find at the local tack shops & Tractor Supply, though - I have to mailorder mine.

I just picked up War Paint, which isnt a spray but one out of 5 horses has been bloody with fly bites. The other horses do great with my vinager fly spray. War Paint come in a deoderant loke tube and you apply it to their problem areas. It isnt something to use if you show though because it is tacky and attracts dirt!

We keep the yellow salt blocks out for the horses. The sulfur helps deter the big black horseflies. (Horses were bloody from them a couple of summers ago, put out the yellow blocks, and the horse files suddenly left them alone, so I guess it really works on horse flies.) It doesn't help with the biting black flies or bot flies.

Vet recommended Pyrhanna (sp?) and we bought some of that. Daughter's little mare will stand like a champ to be sprayed, but my mare will kill anyone who approaches her with a spray bottle. Guess I'll have to just squirt it on a rag and wipe her with it until I can get her to accept being sprayed directly...

That is what I have used and it works great but I was looking for longer lasting. But I do still have some of them in the trailer.

I love Endure. Have used it on many, many different horses there has never been a reaction. Whatever it has in it NEVER stings the horses either. It comes already pre-mixed in spray bottle or I think you can get it in concentrate. Every now & then I switch out to Pirahanna spary just so the nasty flies don't build up a resistence. Good Luck
