Shires Fine Mesh Fly Mask w/Ears & Fringe
This fly mask is great for keeping your horse protected from nuisance flies. Made with airstream ears and fringe at the nose. The movement of the fringe will keep your horse's nose fly-free!
Made from fine mesh to allow full vision and be ultra breathable. This fly mask protects against bothersome flies, midges, gnats, and other flying bugs. Also provides a barrier against dust and airborne particles. Fleece padding provides a close fit to prevent smaller flies from entering under the mask. Suitable for use in the field, the stable or when traveling. The shaping keeps the veil away from the eyes to greatly improve the fit.

These are my favorite fly masks! They stay on and protect the horses nostrils from those pesky flies, love the fringes! Mine were wearing out from continuous use, so bought more when I saw them on sale.
"Best Fly Mask Yet!"
They have a fine mesh Face piece so little gnats, dust and debris don’t get thru, the edges are soft to help prevent rubs. The bands to hold them on under the cheek have both elastic and velcro. The fringe does a great job keeping flies off the nose (and doesn’t get as filthy as the mesh nose pieces). They might seem a little large on some horses but fit mine perfectly, and I’d rather have them on the larger side so as to not be too tight over the eyes or anyplace.
Have couple diff brands, but really like Shires with fringe. Use on my TWH & 2 Donkeys. Like everything about it except would like forelock opening. I cut my own. Seems cooler & keeps forelock out of eyes inside of mask.
"Good looking fly mask"
I like the closure mechanism and the tightness to my horse so no errant flies get in his face. I can't tell whether he likes the fringe, but I like the fact that it didn't get all covered up in seed awns when I let them out in the pasture. I would buy again- next time I need one
"Shires fly mask with ears and nose fringe"
Really made well, strong material with great velco fasteners. Also looks to be very comfortable on your horse. Jeffers is a great company to order from.
" shire Fly Mask"
Best Fly mask ever. It stays on even in aherd
Very sturdy, they stay on very well and the fringes keep flies out of their nostrils. I bought three more because of the price, even though I still had three that the horses were wearing because they are so good!
"Fine Mesh Fly Mask/Turquoise"
Fine Mesh Fly Mask w/fringe. Love that it stays on no matter how many times my mare rolls around on the ground...Love the way it is made with extra padding on the inside as well as around the ears and the adjustable velcro straps....It washes easily and helps keep all the pesties away most especially with the fringe added above her nostrils.....
"Really like it"
I love the fly mask. It is very good quality and stays on. My only issue is when my horses roll and get mud on the mask it is very difficult to wash off. If anyone knows how to easily remove mud please let me know. Otherwise it is the best fly mask I have every used. I recommend it
"Nice fly mask"
Good fit, stays on in the pasture and stall.
"High Quality Fly Mask"
This was our first Shires Fly Mask and it was evident right out of the box that the quality was far superior to any mask we have ever purchased. The extra padding on the inside to prevent rubs, the dual heavy Velcro straps, and the stitching were all great features and finished well. The other nice feature of these mask are the orange highlights that make it easily visible should it ever fall off....with the straps being constructed so well that doesn't seem possible though! Definitely a high quality product.
"Well worth it "
This fly mask is great, amazing.. I bought this after trying several others that didn't stay on and had poor visibility, my FRIESIAN loves it this one..
"Best mask so far!"
My thoroughbred has to have a mask from April into October. I have tried many, many masks. This one is holding up on it's second year and still looks like new. The fit is true to size.
"Best Fly Mask EVER!"
Can't recommend this highly enough. I thought it was too big when I opened the packet but fit perfectly. The ears are a little long but otherwise its made very well, strong and substantial material. Covers well behind the ears and doesn't rub his forelock at all with sturdy velcro straps under the chin leaving no gaps for the midges. The fringes work well keeping the nostrils fly-free. Excellent design - will definitely buy again in the future. Great value for the money!
I recently purchased 3 of these masks for my Paint horses and they are amazing. Very well made, great fly and shade protection too. Based on other reviews I bought the cob size which fits my Quarter Horse Paints perfectly.
