Fly Masks

UPDATE (as of 11/14/2021):


This is one of my new favorite fly masks.


It actually fits as well as the Super Masks, is even more durable, is super comfortable for your horse, and is less expensive.


Yay!


I highly recommend you try one.

Alternative Fly Mask:


The fly mask I recommend is the: Super Mask 2 by Farnam (WITHOUT EARS!)



You should be able to pick one up at ANY feed or tack store.


They fit every size, from Mini to Draft.


I definitely prefer the mask

without ears and nose cover.


The horses are much more comfortable in the Classic version, and they stay much cooler.





***And here are the reasons:***


1. The horses stay cooler in these masks.


2. They are more comfortable.


3. They are more durable.


4. They fit better, no matter what the size or shape of the horse's head.


5. They do a great job protecting the horse's eyes from dust.


6. They do a great job protecting the horse's eyes and eye

area from the sun and from sunburn.


7. They are inexpensive.
