I love my fly sheet. My boy is a freak about fly spray so I needed something to help him. This sheets not really a fly sheet but its a cooling sheet that double a a fly sheet. My horse is a danger magnet...him and his horse buddy love to fight and the only thing that happened was the strap broke...but I fixed it. He got his leg caught when he was rolling. Honestly, it's the best fly sheet out there for a price. And my horse is always comfortable when all the other horses are sweating during the day.

Edit: It's not made of mesh either...I have no idea what the fabric is but I love it!

To see the wind's power, the rain's cleansing, and the sun's radiant life, one need only to look at the horse.

I got my horse a fly sheet on tackwholesale.com for $35. It seems to help somewhat. It at least makes him a bit more comfortable. You usually only get one or two seasons out of them, though. I wouldn't pay a ton of money for one. I always look for the sales and clearances.

Edit: the sheet also helps keep him clean. I take it off every night and his coat is like chrome every time. And that's saying something because that boy is a little piggy.
