I love this fly mask. It is so much easier to put on my horse than others I've used because of the nice wide opening at the pole. It fits great and looks and feels more comfortable than others. It's stretchy and the mesh is very small so tiny insects can't sneak through. Reasonably priced and a very good buy.
I love Shires fly masks, they wear and wash well, with some of mine being 7 years old. Every horse in my barn has one. When I adopted my mule, the large shire masks I have with the fringe were too small for him in that it rubbed his eye. They don't make shires masks for mules with the fringe or ears. when I ordered this for Leroy judging on my large shires mask, I thought this may work for him. it does with one exception, he has a narrow face so even when adjusted as small as I can make it's still loose. If he wants to rub it off he can. Luckily he's smart and prefers to keep it on!
Finally a nice fitting quality mask for my large mustang pony! He usually is a Cob size but someone rec. go down a size so Ponysize fit perfect. Mask runs a bit larger. He is a 20 yr. rescue stallion. The mask does not hit on his eyes either, nice material to see through too.
Very well made and stays on. Padding where touches head. Mesh portion is designed to keep mask off eyes. Strong double velcro straps.
This Shires fly mask without ears is great. Runs large. I ended up ordering cob size which fits my 14.3 gelding fine. It’s nice looking and well made.
Got this mask after trying several for my rescue draft who gets eye ulcers. I was so excited as this is just a great mask except for the fact that if Dually rubs her face the material, which is stiff, gets pushed in and it pokes her in the eye, and stays there, irritating her eye! I thought I could add some reinforcement to keep it from doing that but it's really beyond my scope. Just a shame. I hope Shires gets enough feedback that they fix this problem.
I won't order this brand again- it lasted only about a week- totally shredded by who knows what- i've never had a fly mask fall apart that fast
I ordered a cob and full size. Full was huge and was even too large for my 16h QH who has a large head. Chewy was great they refunded my money and I was able to donate the masks. I ordered the masks all in cob size and they fit perfectly.
Mask works great. Keeps the flies out of the horses face.
This fly mask is the first one to fit our 13hand POA pony really well. It is well made and has soft fleece padding.
