About Farnam Fly Control Products
Three-Stage Fly Control
When it comes to fly control, you have more options than ever before. And while there’s no single solution that will completely banish these pests, Farnam’s three-stage approach—block, repel, reduce—lets you fight flies on all fronts. That means using different products for specific scenarios to achieve the most effective fly control.
Farnam’s No Fly Zone
Flies can spread diseases that are debilitating or even life-threatening. You do not want these pests hanging around your horse or barn if you can avoid it! The key to victory against flying pests is attacking them on multiple levels.
Block with Physical Barriers
The best way to keep flies off your horse’s face is to block them with a good fly mask, which also protects against dust, dirt and debris.
Repel and Kill Pests
Your horse’s environment will help determine whether a spray, spot-on or wipe-on fly repellent is best.
Reduce Pest Population
To complete the No Fly Zone, give your horse a feed-through fly control product with ingredients that work through the manure, not the body.

I bought these for my very AVERAGE sized Arabian horses. None of them are BIG. They all wear Cob bridles on the highest hole. So you would think this allegedly "Arabian sized" fly mask would fit. NOPE. The velcro is too short, its on near the end and they are coming off pretty easily even with the horses who are the best with treating their clothing well. Glad I bought them on sale or I would be furious. Maybe this was why they were on sale.
My horse is a fly mask snob. This mask fits his Quarter Horse jaws great! It covers pretty far down his face and he's thrilled it's earless! Like others, I wish I could have chosen the color but oh well.
This mask is the perfect size for my mini mule. It’s the first mask he can’t just hook and take off. I think the slot for the ears instead of two separate holes makes him much more comfortable. I will re-order as needed.
These fit both my Arabian horse and my Sicilian Donkey perfectly. The velcro is really strong and they stay on really well. The price was perfect and when these bite the dust I will be buying more!
We've been using SuperMasks for decades, tried others but keep coming back. Great fits and wear extremely well.
This worked perfectly for my handsome gelding Quarter Horse. It slips on super easily, there's lots of comfy room for his ears and forelock. I can tell he likes it:) It's pretty and and it protects those precious eyes, and comes down nicely to protect some of his nose. Great price too, thank you Chewy!
I buy the extra large for my draft cross. Farnam added some elastic to the double latch, making it fit even better than before! Just wish I could select the color when I buy it on-line !!!!
Back in the day, THIS is how fly masks were and the simple concept works BEAUTIFULLY, especially in locations where the flies are NOT problematic in terms of getting in the ears or nose and you simply want to keep them out of the horses eyes. It fits very well and stays in place when the horses *WANT* it on but if the horses want it off, they can get it off with out doing damage to it or to themselves, which is very important! My gelding is a trooper and just goes with the flow, RARELY ever removing it on his own; but the MOMENT the bugs become tolerable, my mare will literally figure out how to get hers off... her ways of saying, I don't need this anymore. Yet when the bugs are bad, both horses will come walking up to me in the morning and literally lower their heads for me to put it on! I go through about 1-2 per calendar year which is VERY reasonable given that my horses are on 100% pasture that is FILLED with thorny trees!
The Cashel w/ears & extended nose is my favorite mask. However, two of my horses will not wear those. So they get the old stand-by Farnam mask. Back in the day, these were just about the only masks out there. Now there are so many more. But Farnam remains by go-to for the difficult horses. They stay on the horse's head where I put them. They take ages to wear out as they are tough and well made. Even my fussy horse tolerates Farnam. Thank you Farnam for continuing a good idea as it is and not messing with it.
According to the size chart, my 800 lb. 13.2 hand horse should fit the Arabian/small horse size. Just received this product a few days ago, and am unable to connect the two velcro strips on the bottom, they don't reach to fasten together. It's too small. I donated this mask to a local horse rescue.
