Advice on Fly Boots?
I've been wanting to get fly boot for my horse as he is so sensitive to the flys and stomps so hard even if there is just one fly on his leg. On top of that he has some soundness issues and I doubt all that stomping can be good for his legs.

I was wondering if anyone here could share their experience on what fly boots they found to be durable and don't fall down? I also am curious about fit since most of them seem to be one size fits all, I am worried they will be too small for my 16.3 appy cross. Has anyone had a problem with the boots being too small?

Cashel fly boots. My mare wears them everyday. I just hose them clean every few days and they are great. They do come in all different sizes, just not all websites carry all sizes. I got mine at the local tack shop, so you might have to hunt around. At my store they came in pony all the way up to warmblood.

Thank you! I didn't realize they made fly boots. I'm a big fan of their fly masks :) I will have to check them out.
