"Works if they stay on"
After reading reviews I bought eight for my 4 horses. The reviews were correct ...if you can keep them on they work so no worry about getting the horse hurt. Found one and it came apart from the brown and black part of the collar the snaps were still attached. I would make a suggestion to make them easier to find in the pasture is to use a piece of bright colored duct tape to put on the collar so my suggestion will be sent to the manufacturer as well. So we are down to two so glad we bought extra.
"Defy fly collar, horse"
We have lots of flys in our area. This collar didn't seem to help a bit. I will not buy another one.
"Had to fix it"
After I put this collar on my horse, it broke on day 2. Took it home to re-tape it and will see if it lasts, but not getting my hopes up. Will not buy again unless they restyle/use different materials. Save your money!! Sounded like a nice idea though!
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.
