Horse Tack - Fly Masks
As any equestrian knows, horses do not like flies — especially not in their face. Those pesky flying insects actually mean torture for your horses. Now miniature horses can be protected from those annoying flies, gnats and mosquitoes with the No. 1 fly mask in the equine marketplace — made just to fit minis.
Farnam’s popular SuperMask® is now available in a specially designed size to fit most A and B size miniature horses. This unique mask features adjustable poll and throatlatch closures for adjustability and a good fit for most miniature horses.
The SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask keeps flying insects away from your mini’s eyes, without obstructing their vision, while protecting their eyes from flying dust, dirt and debris. It acts like a sunscreen to protect the eyes and face, and aids in healing after an eye injury. This petite mask has purple fleece-lined ear openings and nose band that conform snugly to keep flies out.
Farnam introduced the SuperMask brand fly mask to the equine marketplace two decades ago. Since that time Farnam has offered additional options to the brand such as “with Ears” and a Double-Latch Closure called SuperMask® II, which has twice the staying power of other masks. The SuperMask® II and SuperMask® II with Ears are available in Horse, X-Large and Arabian. The original SuperMask is available in Yearling and Foal sizes. Each SuperMask box is color-coded to make it easier and faster to recognize the size and style that is right for your horse.
Farnam’s SuperMask Miniature Horse Fly Mask is a National Sponsor of the American Miniature Horse Registry (AMHR) and the Official Fly Mask of the AMHR.
