"Love Shires Mask; Nose is Too Long"
I have been a fan of these Shires' masks for several years. Love 'em because they last the entire summer on horses that are hard on masks. I just took in a new horse that has a white nose, so she needs it covered. I purchased this fly mask and came across a couple of things I didn't love as much: - Nose is super long and extends way past where needed and is in her way. As a result, it gets super dirty. - The zipper is a bit stiff, but maybe that will soften up in time. I can understand that Velcro would come off, so I suppose this is the next best option. - I personally don't like the ears (a bit more heat in Florida), but it was easy enough to cut them out. So far as durability, nothing exceeds these Shires masks. So, I'm rating this style as good, and I do think that it likely exceeds other fly masks with nose pieces.
