This is the fifth Shires Horse Fly Mask with Ears that I have purchased. The first one I got was too big (got an oversize because my horse has a pretty big head), but I used it anyway. I just had to retrofit a little. It worked well until I put it on another horse that hates fly masks. It disappeared. Crazy. It was bright orange, but I never found it! Another one I have used for about four years and it just got a rip above the eye. All of the others are still in use. The horse size fits my big guy perfectly.
These are sturdy. Hey I recommend reg horse sized for Norwegian Fjords. The plus is too much. My mustang off the range takes a cob. Making it easier for others that have those breeds.
This is one of the best masks I've tried - and I've tried them all. It stays off their eyes and is a fine mesh instead of that thick, hot material on most masks. I also like the double velcro latches so it is harder for them to rub off.
My mare loves nothing more than absolutely destroying a fly mask. This one has lasted a few weeks so far and I am happy with that. She still managed to tear a part of one ear but it's held up otherwise!
At first I loved it, My horse couldn't take it off like he did his old one but it tore really easily in one spot and the seam that goes around his neck is coming undone.
Great fly mask, a perfect fit for my Danish Warmblood.
Absolutely LOVE this fly mask. Stays put, velcro straps are thicker and strong, the eye protection is great for my my girl that has uveitis in one eye and just looks nice overall. The ONLY thing I would change is having a hole to pull my girl's forelock through (only reason it's getting 4 stars and not 5). I didn't think about it when I ordered it, but that's my oops.
I've bought a lot of fly masks over the years, and this one is by far the nicest. Superior quality material, heavy duty Velcro and the Full Size fits my 16.1 hand Mare, perfectly. Super nice looking on.
I had to write a review for this fly mask as it deserves good press! My mare has never kept a fly mask on. It doesn't look particularly different from other quality brands although there is elastic at the poll, and I didn't see how it could perform any better, but for some reason my mare does not get this one off. Fly free at last!
