"great sun protection - wish lasted longer"
This mask was purchased more for sunburn protection than flies. My mare wore it daily for about three months and the bottom band seperated from the mask and the woven fabric quickly became frayed and uncomfortable as the rigid fibers stabbed her in the muzzle. The band also posed a hazard as the mare had it in her mouth when I discoverd the problem and couldn't quite figure out how to spit it out. Great concept. Excellent sun protection. Just need better reinforcement along seams.
I have 9 horses that all have white on their faces. I have been using the Cashel Long without ears for years. The are great at not only keep the fly and nats out of their eyes but they are great for preventing sunburn. I have been extremely pleased with this product
"I love this fly mask"
"I inherited one of these masks when I purchased an older mare. I used it all the time. She absolutely loved her Crudader fly mask. when it finally became unusuable, I used some other fly masks I had laying around. They just didnt help her the same. My mare's eyes just run all summer without a fly mask. Any other mask I used, her eyes still wept! I am excited to give her a new ""Crusader"" fly mask."
"need large sizes"
The Crusader Cool mask without ears is great for my gray horse. It keeps the sun off his white nose and face, and also protects his eyes from UV sun rays. I need a larger size for my biggest horse (over 17 hands tall). Could you carry larger sizes, please?
"Perfect for baldface horses!"
Best face mask for your bald face or white nose horse.No more sun burns! It holds up well. My mask is going on its second season of daily summer use. I will purchase another.
