The BEST Fly Spray Dispenser EVER

Not sure if this is the best folder for this post so feel free to move.

I am now the proud owner of the best fly spray dispenser ever!

It was $10 at Home Depot - empty, of course. It works in the same way as the sprayers for RoundUp work - pump and spray. No more PST PST PST noise to aggravate your horse!

I got the 1 gallon size but it comes in bigger sizes.

2nd the vote for hand sprayers! I bought one that's about 1/2 gallon from Walmart and I love it!

I used to make my own spray, I wish I would have thought of that!

Most of the foals I've bred have freaked out at the PSSSSST PSSSSST of the fly spray bottles a few times and then gotten over it, but this years foals seem to reallllllllly hate the fly spray bottles and we're just not getting ahead of that, so I tried the pump and while they still aren't thrilled, they are better. It's also just more efficient I think.

The cheap five dollar containers don't last. They aren't truely meant for chemicals. They start leaking around the nozzle. I picked up three chemical sprayers, one 1/2 gallon for the barn, one 40 oz. for the day runner and the same for the LQ. I love them!

We've used one of those on my grandpa's place for years. Back when he was breeding and racing TBs. The horses would come to the fence to be sprayed when they saw you coming. You and your horses are going to love it!

I am so loving it!

My non horsey husband was the one that suggested the idea, LOL! I didn't know they sold empties until he mentioned it.
