Nice really keeps flys off

So nice to go out and there’s no flies on my horses or in there face or eyes and not have to use any chemicals or sprays that scare them or chemicals near there eyes

It works well for us

As long as you feed this as directed (minimum of 1 pound per horse), and start it before fly season (I start feeding it at the end of March), this really works. Between this and Fly Predators, I have significantly less flies than I've had before. I started using both last year (2021), and I don't think I will ever go back to not using them. My horses are much more comfortable, and I have less scrapes, scratches and bumps that come with them fighting flies.

I love Tribute Horse Feeds and would recommend the product to anyone! However, I have found Chewy to be very overpriced. I found a semi-local dealer of Tribute feeds, about an hour drive from us, who sells the same products 30% cheaper. We are talking more than $10/bag cheaper. Now I will loose the convenience of shipping to my door, but I won't feel bad for our delivery driver and I will save a ton of money by buying in bulk more local.

Senior feed w fly control

A feed that has fly control is a rare find! I needed to try this because other fly control supplements are way too expensive.

Hoping this helps with fly control

I have been feeding horses Tribute's Essential-K ration balancer for years. I have never met a horse that did not like this feed. So, when I saw that there was a fly control version available, I decided to try it. I use fly predators, as well. It is too soon to comment on the fly control aspect, but the 12 horses I feed had no transition issues from regular Essential-K. I did not think they would, but with horses you never know. I plan to feed this formula through the summer months. Keeping my fingers crossed that it works, as the cost increase from regular formula Essential K is substantial.

Not sure how well it's working

I am on my second bag of this feed. Will be switching to the basic balancer since I haven't noticed any change to the fly population. If anything I think there has been more this year than in the past. We have also had a lot of rain likely which does play a roll.

This Stuff Works

I have been using Tribute Essential K for years so I was really excited to see a version with ClariFly. I had good luck with ClariFly in the past and it has worked well for my Joker. I used it towards the end of the fly season but it definitely seemed to do the trick. Hopefully we have the same good results once the whether warms up!
