    I am about to try a new product called "think fly". You feed it to your horse to keep flies at bay. We have had one person give feed back that it is working well so i will see how good it is.
    For the price i hope it works......

    At $2.50 per day, the price has more of a sting than a fly bite!!:confused: :confused:

    I am not sure but obviously it works from the inside out, sort of like feeding garlic, so it makes their sweat not so nice for the flies. Flies are attracted to moisture thats why the go for the eyes, nostrils etc so i am guessing thats how it works.
    Winnie can be the guinea pig and will report back how it works. There was an article in the latest hoof beats about it.;)

    Just saw your post Caroline.

    True, but my boy comes up in horrible lumps, that i have only ever seen a cortisone shot relieve them, i have tried everything. And if it costs that much to make him more comfortable then so be it.;)

    I have found that a fly mesh combo rug and fly veil can work very well, but I am think that the fly veil needs a nose covering to keep them off that area.

    Even with rugs on he gets bitten, he has two fly mesh combo rugs, and he is a very hot horse that sweats even in one of those...

    I hope it works Vee, sounds great if it does. No more sprays etc.

    Look forward to hearing how it goes, how long do they say it takes before it has an effect??

    Have you spoken to an equine naturopath or herbalist for other options. That product is a glorified mix of herbs, minerals etc. Is it swabbable???
     
  16. Maree4

    No its not swabbable, and i have tried everything from chemical sprays to herbal sprays and oils, i feed garlic, it is a fly alergy that unfortunately he has inherited his mum has it too. The only thing that helped the lumps was cortisone, and i don't want him on that monthly.
    I must admit i am a little sceptical but i can't say it no good unless i have tried it. It may be the right mix that works for him, it may not.;)

    It does sound interesting Maree4, do you know what the product is made of?
    Would really like to know, thanks.:)

    Well this is what it says on the packaging.
    Devon bank, no artificial colours and non- GM.
    Suitable for all horses in any ration, its made in the UK and it is a unique all natural formula composed of carefully blended concentration of herbs and essential oils.

    It also says "you may note a change in your horses natural oodour, but so will the flies.

    Thats it thats all i can tell you.
