I am buying these, in multiples, for my small paint. He needed something protective. These fit better than regular masks but I do have to use ties at the top and braid them into his mane so he doesn't loose them. Of 3, I have one left. These don't leave rub patches on his face, but the lycra does stretch. Machine washable. Built in ties at the pol would be great, but there is a tab for that.
"Comfort-fit Lycra Flay Mask with ears"
They work well for my cobb horses, but they wouldn't ever fit over the heads of my Andalusian that I have or our large Quarter horse. But for the smaller horses they fit fine.
I ordered this for my very laid back QH mare. The fabric has already stretched out around the throat latch, and I can't keep it on her due to the stretching. So disappointing. I've done business with Jeffers many years and really wanted to leave a positive review.
"Follow up review of Aztec lycra fly mask"
Jeffers offered exceptional service by checking back with me re my review of the Professional's Choice Aztec lycra fly masks. Kim responded promptly and made things right. Great experience. Great customer service.
I have been ordering this type of fly mask for a couple of years now. I have several for my Champ and can change them every day so I can wash them. He almost helps me put them on as he knows how comfortable they are and that they will protect his eyes and ears.
"Pro choice Aztec fly mask"
These work great while they last. I ordered the Aztec design horse size for my 5 horses after my daughter had good luck with the sloth design on her horse. Two of mine were in shreds within a week and a third is now unusable after two weeks. I believe the Aztec lycra fabric must be inferior to the sloth design fabric. It seems thinner and less elastic and obviously doesn't hold up as well. I am not expecting the other two to make it through the summer. Sad waste of money. BTW, the sloth design mask is still holding up well. Too bad they are out of stock.
I ordered this mask for my sometimes skittish horse. I was afraid she wouldn't let me put it on her. But she loved it! She will actually stand and lower her head so I can adjust it. It fits well and stays in place.
"Love it! "
These are very cute and my daughter is thrilled her mares have matching unicorn fly masks! We are saving them for shows and travel. They have older ones they can wear in the fields. I got them when they were on sale. Very happy with my purchase.
"lycra fly mask"
I bought one at least 2 years ago. I don't use in pasture. I use it under my bridle while I am riding because my horse can see so well through it. He does not shake his head repeatedly while riding anymore.
"Works well but easily destroyed"
We bought two of these fly masks, I love the cute patterns that they offer! They fit fantastic and are fairly easy to get on. I loved that the horses seem to have better visibility with the mesh over the eyes but sadly, if your horse rubs their face on anything… And I mean anything, the mesh tears instantly. One of our horses still has his on, totally intact and it’s been at least two weeks now. Our other horse had hers ripped up within the first three days.
"Cute, but not worth the money!"
Pros: - Cute - Fun color options - Great coverage Cons: - Does not stay on! Purchased 3 of these masks based on the positive ratings and was very disappointed as all of my horses had removed their masks within the first 24 hours. I've tried putting them on again and again with the same result - having to go hunt down the mask. Sorry to be a Debbie-Downer you guys, but choose another mask!
"Very comfortable for horses - extra roomy mesh over the eyes"
Very easy to put on horses - sometimes a horse will take it off another horse - but it's easy to put back on. Horses appear to like these - even a skittish horse here will hold still to wait for the fly mask and not run away. No flies get inside. Only wish there were a hole to pull the forelock thru. Came back to buy more, but now the only ones left are Cob size and the reviews for the other similar fly masks indicate the eye mesh on the other fly masks touch the horses' eyes. Definitely appreciate the generous fabric and the darts used while sewing these - the mesh really stays off their eyes on this model. Hope more will be made and offered for sale. I will try the others, but don't like the mesh to touch the horses' eyes.
Best fitting masks I have found, they don't lose them as easy as other kinds. Love them
"great for the price"
I bought two cob sizes for my donkeys and they fit them PERFECTLY!! They have definitely held up for the money. The stretchy material is soft and won't rub their face. Will buy again in the future!
"Super great mask"
Going to switch everyone at our place to only these type of masks nothing gets inside. Totally recommend them
