Bug Eye Fly mask (long w/ears)
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Kensington
Model: Bug Eye Fly mask (long w/ears)
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: I acquired this fly mask just last week, having tried the Cashel and Farnham Super Mask II. I paid $30 through netEquestrian.com. I had the same problem as another reviewer in that the mask's "bug eyes" had turned inward-into my horse's eyes!! This was shortly after I put it on him. He is blind in one eye, and this just was an expensive vet bill waiting to happen. I have spent enough $$ on emergency visits due to his blind eye. I didn't need any more. The concept is excellent, but the design, for some reason falls very flat. Also, I bought the "long" mask, to cover the whole face. Even after "straightening" the mask out, it still was a little hard to attach the bottom piece to the mask. The sizes are hard to deal with too. My boy is a regular sized QH and I bought the "horse size"-way too big. Then I sent it back and got the Arab size (for horses up 800-900 lbs)-too small in some areas, big in others. Go figure. Needless to say, THAT mask was returned. I am returning to the Super Mask II which lasted me over 2 years!!!!

Likes: The concept of the "bug eye" design..but just the CONCEPT!

Dislikes: The design for some reason seems flawed in that the "eyes" turn inward and don't pop back out. This is a HUGE safety issue. Sizing was difficult as was attaching the bottom nose piece as the flap never wanted to stay open and kept sticking to the velcro.

Quality: OK.

Summary: I returned it and will NEVER try it again unless the manufacturer fixes these flaws.
