Deluxe Fly Mask
Fly Control

For Sale on eBay

Manufacturer: Shedrow
Model: Deluxe Fly Mask
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: One of our horses is particularly bothered by pests during mosquito, fly and horse / deer fly season. This mask offered the most protection we could find. We paid approximately $15.00 Cdn for the mask on sale at Greenhawk in Mississauga, Ontario. The catalogue price is $24.95.

Likes: This mask is awesome. The main part of it seems to be some sort of plastic mesh (similar to the Farnam masks), but the holes are very small to deter whatever wants to feast on your horses head. The part that covers a horses forehead and ears is made of softer mesh, and there's a little hole to fit the forelock through. I like that it's long enough to extend to the tip of our horses nose. She rarely gets bitten there, but it offers some protection from the sun as well.

Dislikes: Odd but there's a piece of solid material on the fly mask, midway down that would sit under a halter, if the horse was wearing one. It feels like blanket material.. very soft and everything sticks to it (dust, leaves, etc). I guess it was made to offer some protection from halters, so that one didn't rub the mask through, but it's an odd choice of material. It's only on the top side as well (the underneath of this piece is mesh, which sits against the horses nose).

Quality: Excellent quality. Some people have commented on this type of mask that the one velcro strap which holds it on the horses head doesn't fit securely, but I haven't found this problem yet. The horse who wears it loves to roll and will sometimes slip her halter. This mask has obviously been on during a roll, but it has never come off or loosened. Despite the 'abuse', nothing has frayed or come apart. With a quick wash in mild soap and water, it comes out looking great again. I don't know if it could be thrown in the washing machine - there were no instructions with the mask - but I prefer to hand wash my horse gear (except blankets!) anyway.

Summary: I'm going to get another one for our other horse. Definitely a great buy.
