Likes: For three years I have been searching for a way to keep the ticks from trying to drain my draft cross gelding. Granted, there's plenty there to "share" but seriously, those ticks need to find another bar to drink from. I've tried a dozen types of fly spray as well as both the topical oils that work like Frontline for my dog; but they never seemed to work very well. This spring I started on my quest and a bright purple bottle caught my eye. Absorbine Bug Block. Hmm.. looks interesting. But as we all know; manufacturers spend lots of money on packaging to attract OUR attention. I did some research and it came highly recommended by major equine publications. Since the others all had similar recommendations I figured the only way to find out for sure was to give it a try. I went down to my local tack shop and grabbed a bottle. When I got home, I groomed my boy; then started to spray and rub in the Bug Block.The first thing I noticed was it had no nasty smell. In fact, I couldn't smell anything! Then, as I worked up his neck and onto his crest I saw 2 ticks literally running down my arm to get away from it. Now THAT was instant results! Five days later; our barefoot trimmer came and not a single fly or mosquito came anywhere near either of them. She was thrilled and I was as well. I hadn't re-applied the spray at all! To make a long story short; I'm going to get the gallon refill on my next trip out. FINALLY something that WORKS!

Dislikes: Nothing!

Quality: Sprayer works good; mists evenly and doesn't create hand fatigue with prolonged use.

Summary: Absorbine Bug Block works fabulous and I'm thrilled I won't have to spend the summer & fall picking ticks out of my boy's double mane! I'm going to get the gallon refill on my next trip out. FINALLY something that WORKS!
