This neck collar has been the only thing that has helped my gelding from getting welts every evening when the bugs get bad. It has stayed on and doesn't seem to bother him at all.
"Won't stay on"
These work well when you first put them on, but alas, the plastic doesn't hold up. The horses pull them off, and the plastic breaks. There is another brand that attaches with velcro, and it stays put!!!!!
"A waste of money"
I had ordered 3 for my horses and on the one it lasted a day before it was ripped and I had to tape it. After that I found at least one of them every day on the field broken.When I had more tape then anything else I took them off . After a week I saw mosquitos landing on it as well, so much to being a repellent. It would need to be very much so improved before I would buy it again. The idea is great so.
Initially, I really liked this product; even better than the other brand. Snaps worked great & it fit well. However, it only lasted one week before breaking apart. I took it off every evening, replacing it in the morning. The plastic-like collar started cracking the 2nd day my mare wore it; then it just broke in 3 pieces within 7 days. Very disappointing. Would buy again if they fix this problem.
