Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I bought 2 of these from Smartpak for about 25 dollars each.
Likes: They are attractive fly masks, which seem to fit the horses quite well. They have adequate room around the eyes, and the fleece edges are nicely padded. I like the color, and the various options you can get regarding length and ears/no ears.
Dislikes: I bought the large for my hanoverian who has a refined head, and find that it's a little loose around his nose. In contrast, purchased the WB size for my other hanoverian who has a giant head. It fits him perfectly through the head, but his ears are kind of squished because the mask's ears are kind of small. Also, when the boys rough house, they are easily able to pull off each others masks, no matter how securely they were velcroed. Luckily, the damage to the masks is minimal, and I've been able to home-repair all the rips so far.
Quality: Well made, and fairly durable, though they can't hold up to truly rough Gelding Games. When the do rip, they are easy to repair.
Summary: For affordable, attractive fly masks, these are a great choice. I love that they come with soft ears, and my horses are much happier out in the field when they've got these on.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
