Deer flies
 
I am going to try garlic with my horses. Anyone have suggestions for deer flies? I live in the NE and we have had a lot of rain. Riding in the woods, is nearly impossible. I put spray on them as well as my cashel riding masks. When they are sweaty, I can't get rid of the deer flies. HELP :evil: Thank you for any suggestions. Misty and Danny's mom

Endure fly spray works really well for deer flies in particular, they seem to hate the stuff--really get your horse wet with it, rub it in with a rag.

Garlic should help! :D I've also found Absorbine to be a great fly spray.
