Horse spooks at fly spray
The horse I am leasing, Hoanna a 4 year old Akhal teke filly, hates/spooks at the feeling of fly spray. It's not the sound of the spray but the feeling of it hitting her skin she hates. Her coat is very thin because she is an Akhal teke so she can feel everything a lot easier than other horses. She doesn't hate the hose or getting baths, just the mist of fly spray. I'm guessing it tickles her or something, in a way she doesn't like. Right now I have to spray it into my hand and wipe it on her, is there anyway to get her to not spook at me spraying her? I can't even point the fly spray bottle at her without her starting to dance back and forth in her cross ties.
