Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I paid $19.95 at a local tack shop. My horse has a wide face and most fly masks did not fit.
Likes: The little loop under the chin for attaching lead ropes. Loved that feature!
Dislikes: Everything else. I am going to be returning it to the store. It came stuffed in a bottle instead of folded up so it took a little while to come into shape (all the while causing my horses eyes to water). And When it finally did it tore in two places after 15 uses. And my mare is not hard on her stuff, our last fly mask lasted us 2.5 years before she outgrew it (bought it when she was 4). It is an odd fit as well, it does not seal around the chin or behind the ears so the flies where crawling their way in and getting stuck in the ear covers. Also it is black and fleece lined, she would sweat like a pig in the sun, even when it was not very warm. The ears are much to stiff, she could not move them and when she tried it would give her rubs at the base of her ears.
Quality: Terrible, it was tearing at the seams and fraying everywhere after only 15 uses on a horse who outgrows but never wears out her stuff.
Summary: Bottom line, do not buy this mask.
Usefulness Rating: 2.2 out of 5.
