"Save your money"
It took less then 5 minutes for my mare to remove and lose this in the pasture...and good luck finding it since it's black. As a fly mask for turnout this is absolutely worthless, it's way too stretchy and large for the average horse head, there is no way to attach it to a halter securely, and no way to wear it under a halter since the eye holes are so large..the halter side halter piece interferes with the mesh netting, pushing it into the horses eye. If your horse stands in a stall all day, and has nothing whatsoever to use to pull it off, it might work, but probably not. Total waste of money. I'd love to return it, but I'm never going to find it in my 20 acre pasture. If it were possible to give it zero stars I would.
Great Product for a good price! My horse loves it.
there just like a sock, so there's no straps or anything so your horse shouldn't get burns like with most fly masks. I live these things so much, buuuut my horses rub them off every 2days. The material isn't that gr8, a few have ripped but not to bad.
Awesome product. For those who speak of them coming off, there is a strong loop atop the poll use yarn and make one braid with the mane and there ya go. This is true to size I think and can't beat the price. Plan to order extra's.
Awesome fly mask for the money. They don't stay on in the pasture but they're great for trail riding in buggy areas.
This is the best fitting Head mask for eyes and ears that I have ever had. The only exception I have with it , is that the mesh is a little large. We have a scourge of knots and they go through...not 100%, but they do go through. If the mesh were smaller, I would be shouting from the roof top your praises!!
"OK if you put halter over them "
these are ok if you leave a halter on over them ( not recommended overnight) . but they are flimsy and we have only had them for 10 days and they are all stretched out . do not recommend.
Mask is wonderful. Doesn't tear when my stallion takes it off. Only problem is now he knows he can take it off, he does so promptly! LOL Thank goodness I put SWAT in his ears.
I was hesitant when I got this, as I didnt realize I got the mask without the velcro. was worried about my horse being so touchy around her head... not a problem after a few minutes of desensitizing her to it. I love the fit, love that it came off when one of them rubbed against the thorn bush... no tears, I just retrieved it and put it back on. I can see where it could tear easily, but the fact that there is little area for the mosquitos and flies to get in, is a plus. I have since told my farrier, who plans to order some, and gave some as gifts and will be ordering more for backup, especially since the price is right. this does not rub or feel like its irritating them like all the others I have tried. AND, with the high viability, I dont feel bad about leaving it on at night.
I love the premise of this mask. Easy to put on and it stays on my mare. Love the bug eyes, mask doesn't rub against her eyes. Hate that the mesh has such large holes. Our insects in my area of GA are horrible. The holes are large enough for gnats to get through and fro our biting flies to bite through. The lycra tears easily, which I expected. I bought 3 of these masks and I will use them, but will have to try and find some small mesh to put in the ears at least.
Love this fly mask! Was worried about size of netting but have had no issues so far! Material is nice and cool and fits my Quarter horse, THE cross perfectly only catch is he rubbing his head in the barn and slides it off causing it to stretch out if he doesn't have his halter on. Under his halter though have had no issues!
"Great for under bridle"
I have been looking for a fly mask that would not be too bulky to wear under my horses bridle when we go out trail riding. This bug mask is perfect, not too heavy, ears are covered, large mesh holes around the eyes not to block vision. My horse is so much happier for being covered, eliminates the need for putting fly spray on their face. For such a great price! Wish they were not sold out of the horse size as I wish I had ordered more.
These masks are the absolute best for horses with big eyes. Big eyes are one of the criteria I have for selecting a horse so all of mine have large eyes. These are at the only masks I've ever bought which don't EVER touch their sensitive eyes. They are very economically priced too. The only reason for only 4 stars is that I wish they came in miniature horse size. Ordering more right now.
"DO NOT ORDER"
This is the worst fly mask I have ever ordered! The netting is too wide and allows tiny gnats through! I had them on my horses for almost an hour and they were itching and scratching because of the bugs eating their ears and getting in their eyes and therefore ripped them to shreds! I am very unhappy with the results as I had Absorbine masks on my guys and they wore them for weeks and weeks until I took them off! I have had the Absorbine masks for 3 years using them every summer all summer long and needed replacement! Decided to try these and I am very unhappy! Pretty much a waste of money! DO NOT ORDER!
"Best Fly Mask So Far"
A bit difficult to put on, but just takes learning how. Bought one to try; am now going to buy several. I believe the mare likes the way it feels on her. I love the fit, and it's very soft and gentle against her face around the edges. Highly recommend it!
