Oh no, I’ve ordered a large, he seems to be a ‘small full’ size in most things so fingers crossed it will fit ok! If not I may have to just keep covering him in fly gel. Unfortunately I can’t find a fly repellent that lasts all day!
Hi everyone, I’ve just brought home a new horse, he’s an ex racer and has obviously never encountered fly spray or fly masks! The flies are horrendous atm and I feel he’d be more comfortable in a mask during the day, they were walking into his eyeballs this morning! He does have a cataract in...

It seems effective on cobs feather mites as well.
