Manufacturer: Fly Free Zone
Model: Fly Leg Bands for Horses
Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I purchased a set of 4 of these Fly Leg Bands from State Line Tack for $15.99 at the time.
Likes: Well. At first, these bands kept flies off of a wound on Cowboy's fetlock, and kept him from stomping at the flies constantly.
Dislikes: I went by the directions EXACTLY. And even the store employee warned me about these -- a lot of horses have reactions to them. Cowboy's legs swelled up around the bands, and he was really incredibly stiff. I took off the bands, and walked him, and it went down. But the bands will NOT be back on his legs. Even putting the bands on him, the chemicals got all over my hands.
Quality: "Long-lasting, comfortable leg bands feature the latest all-natural formula with no harmful chemicals. Each leg band is impregnated with an all-natural insect repellent. Creates a fly free zone several inches from horses legs while protecting legs from biting and disease transmitting gnats, flies and mosquitoes."
Summary: I don't like these bands, and I won't purchase them again for Cowboy -- or any other horse.
Usefulness Rating: 2.5 out of 5.
