That Said..... When we do ride in the spring/fall My hubbys horse is driven absolutely crazy by the flies. I got the crotchet(sp) ear covers and they helped some but when the biting flies are swarming around he stops and scratches his nose against his leg.. I am not sure if the nose or leg itches. Both horses are pretty good about letting us cut limbs with leaves still on them and use them as "fly swats". I saw in a catalog the fly mask that you can put over a bridle over the top.
Does it work fairly well?? Does it drive the horse crazy or is the buzzing flies still drive the horse crazy??
