Absorbine Ultra Shield Fly Bonnet

I have finally found a fly mask that we are all happy with! I bought these the other day at Tractor Supply Company. The girls actually put their heads down and allow me to place the masks over their ears without an argument! They also protect against the sun's Ultra Violet rays! Awesome product! Love it! And the horses are pleased.

I love it too! I did a post on the mask as well because it is the best one I have found so far. My horse got it for his birthday back on May 25th and he is known for killing any sort of fly protection I give him. This fly mask though has lasted and still looks like new today! I love it!

onthebit, What sold me the most was the sun protection as we have pink noses and eyes over here. They were only $15 bucks each as well and it seemed less likely to crunch and interfere with their eyes. Best 30 bucks I've spent in a long time!

I've got to try this mask for our herd. We always used the Cashel masks and they worked fine. We bought new ones this year and it seems they changed some things: around the ears used to have a silky/cotton sort of material that has been replaced by mesh, which now rubs all the hair off their faces, nice. The ears seem to be smaller now too(same size masks)and now their ears are practically bent over. I'm really unhappy with these masks, and was going to do a post on them, but haven't gotten around to it yet. Thanks for trying the Absorbine ones out and giving us a review!

Arlene, I like these because so far they are sturdy and cover most of the nose and pink areas of my girls and so far no one has even tried to remove them. They actually seem quite happy with them!

I will have to try this one. My horse did not do well with the Farnam Super masks. I think he needs something that does not appear to irriate his eyes and eye-lashes. Thanks for the recommendation.

Any idea if they make these with a long nose cover? My Appy needs protection all the way down his face. Am using Cashel's right now, but he's good at getting it off.
Thanks for posting this info!

It's fairly long over their nose, however I would still put on some sunscreen.
