best fly spray on the market is B-Free of Flies. it literally kills the flies on contact spray and watch them drop down dead. The Mosquito Products and Flying Insect Controls Every Horse Barn Should Have you can ask your local feed store to carry it but if not buy it online by the case and share it with your barn buddies like my barn does. put it to the test and you will throw everything else you have tried away. great way to prevent those mosquitoes from biting too.

Skin so soft attracts mosquitos to me as if I've become a mosquito homing beacon. I can't touch that stuff or I'll be in a world of hurt and itchiness!

I saw a Yahoo article a week or so ago that said catnip was a natural mosquito repellant. "Apply undiluted catnip oil to the skin for up to two hours of protection."
I haven't tried it but thought I'd share.

I've also heard that those little Off! fans that have citronella in them helps too.

Nothing seems to work for me and when I put sunblock on it seems to attract the flys, gnats, noseeums and mosquitos even more. So irritating!

Good luck!

Much better to rub the garlic on their coats :) garlic isn't good for horses stomachs.

I have skin so soft, it works really well

A beginner will practise until they can get it right but a professional will practise until they can't get it wrong
