Allergic to flies
My Appy (Paco) is allergic to black flies.
My vet has prescribed several things, but none seem to work and Paco hates fly spray even if it's wiped on.
Paco wears a mask, but the problem area is his neck. He gets bumps all over his neck this time of year.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Willards water works great. Dillute it in a spray bottle with water. My horse used to itch and break out in hives and it helped him so much.
Thanks Rider, I'll give it a try.
Several things I have read but not tried
Apple cider vinegar in the drinking water
Several herbal fly sprays, Flicks comes to mind which I have used and it works fairly well.
A fly sheet and mask. I just saw this one and was thinking of trying it out myself. I have one filly who is allergic to something (plant related) out in our pasture.
Yeah, what is it? My horse breaks into hives too!
I put him in the amigo bug buster; that fly sheet with the bug repellent in it already. It's expensive, but it works: as long as it's on, he won't break out like a kid who stepped into a bee hive. LOL.
Hi, Jim . .. .you should have your shipment by the end of this coming week.
After you get it, you could give me a call and we can discuss how to use it
for that particular problem.
Please remind me of exactly what it is we are talking about . . .the
allergies from fly bites . . I wind up talking with so many folks each day
that it is REALLY easy to forget!
Thanks for the order . .. you've been led to an awfully good . . .and
cost-effective . . .thing.

Marigold Fly Spray
it is frickin amazing, I would even consider using it on myself if i smelled like a horse and was bothered by flies. :) lol
It is for humans. It's used for ALOT of different things. But you dillute it in a fly spray bottle with water and it works great. I was recommended it from a trainer and I love it. My horse had rubbed his mane off in some spots from being so itchy and within a week of using it he started to grow back and he didn't have any hives. It relatively cheap and really good, but its not a subsitute for fly spray, it just helps with the hives and itching.
