Manufacturer: Miracle Coat
Model: No Fly Zone Natural Horse Spray
Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I bought a 32 oz spray bottle of Miracle Coat No Fly Zone at Rural King for $9.99. I was looking for an organic or natural fly repellent for my horse. I do not like to apply chemical after chemical to a horse's skin, and I am a strong proponent for herbal medicines.
Likes: The active ingredients are a mixture of Citronella, lemon grass and clove. You could smell the clove strongly, and it was a refreshing change from the medicinal and chemical odors of other fly sprays. I have always used Miracle Coat products on my show dogs (Irish and Gordon Setters)(the lusterizer and conditioner is marvelous for removing tangles (even on a dry coat) and the 4:1 shampoo, laden with tea tree oil, is a natural flea repellent that REALLY works), so I figured I couldn't go wrong. The flies (face and stable) were getting thick at the barn the other day, and my poor horse, though he'd been hosed and sprayed with repellent several times during the day, was miserable, stomping his feet and twitching his tail and skin. I used No Fly Zone on him and the flies, though a few continued to try to land, quickly dwindled to just a handful in the air around him, and even those eventually took off. I think it was the clove oil that did it, actually. My horse loved the scent and tried to lick my hands as I applied the repellent to his face. Other boarders in the barn were amazed when they saw how effective the spray was, and they asked if they could borrow it. Nothing else was working this year...not UltraShield, Bronco, or anything else; every horse that we used No Fly Zone on was more comfortable within seconds of using it, and long after we had applied it they were still fly-free.
Dislikes: There was nothing bad about this product.
Quality: Sturdy black recyclable plastic and well-balanced.
Summary: My confidence has never been higher with Miracle Coat products and I'll continue trying all their products. Watch out for dogs with immune system problems or skin/food allergies, however, when using Miracle Coat 4:1 shampoo; the tea tree oil may cause their skin to break out within 48 hours of a bath. Try on a small patch of skin first if you have worries. Their dog shampoo can also be used on horses.
