Category: Fly Control
Purchase: I wanted an inexpensive fly spray, that I could use on my horses. I wanted one that I only needed to apply it once a week or less. I purchaesed this fly spray from Dover saddlery, for about $6.00.
Likes: The price is so great. This fly spray is non-irritating even to my most sensitive horses. It contain aloe, and paba sunscreen. This spray is made by Farnam, which is a very trusted horse company. This fly spray works great when wiped on. Has a great citronalla spray.
Dislikes: Same as the reason I like it, it is cheap cost wise, but also cheap quality wise. You must take the extra time to wipe it on, and rub it into the hair, rather than just spraying it on. The sprayer nozzle is very loud, and spooks my horses. It is not water resistant, or sweat resistant. for my horses to get proper fly and sun protection, I must reapply this spray several times in one day. it contains lanolin, which has been known to dry out your horses skin, or fade out the hair. It stings VERY bad, when it gets onto on of my cuts, so you can imagine what a horse thinks of it too. Like many fly sprays, it is has a tendency to make the hair very slick, so I do not reccomend you put it on the saddle area, which is not convinient as flies will then swarm that area, with no spray. Sometimes it makes my horses sneeze a lot.
Quality: The quality of this fly spray is poor, it is very low grade.
Summary: I personally will not purchase this product again, and it makes me question the quality of other Farnam products. I do not like the effect of this spray on my horses coat. It does not repel most flies, mainly barn flies. I would not reccomend anyone spending the $6.00 on this product. That is $6.00 that you could put towards a more quality fly spray!
