    I would think it would be no problem to leave on overnight. A lot of people say not to leave them on 24/7 just for the fact that they can hide eye injuries. You should always take the mask off at least once a day to let them "breathe" and check over to make sure they didn't injure themselves under the mask.

    In summer I leave my boy's fly veils on 24/7 as the flies over here are horrific. They are in a large paddock and manage fine.
    Last week my TB had an eye ulcer and had to wear a flyveil with a patch on it for a week. Even with one eye covered, he managed fine in the paddock.

    Your horses will be alright with the flyveil on at night :)
