Took a while to find a flymask that fit his head and he will agree to wear. He was kept intact until 4yo, so has the larger jaw. That and he is a small horse, almost large pony. I have a Shires Equestrian mask for my mare and it fits her nice. This one is a different style, and the cob fits him nicely. At first he would pull it off within a few minutes. Discovered he does not like the ears so trimmed them out. Since removing them he will wear the mask all day. Both of them like the nose fringe, stops so much head shaking for the flys. I find these masks to be sturdy - she just finished her 3rd year with hers! They are easier to see through and seem to stay cleaner than other brands I've tried. Like the double velcro for adjustability, especially to fit his head.
My masks (horse size) fringe hangs over the nostrils so actually better for fly and sun protection. Pricing was good.
One of best fitting/durable masks I have bought. Great price too. Wish I would of bought a few more!
Only mask to have lasted in place on the horse, for at least 1month so far, and with no rips or tears. I use on a horse who is pastured and gets into all kinds of conditions out there.
We have horses since 1992 and they are turned out as a herd during the day. The Shire Fly Masks last years! None of the other brands did last more than a season at best and the price is unbeatable. Highly recommend them. True to size.
Nice fly mask. The fringes probably make it more comfortable to wear, keeping the horse cooler while still providing coverage.
