How Long Can A Fly Mask Stay On?

Fly masks are like superman capes for horses. They're great, but even superman has to take off his cape now and then. Most equestrians would recommend removing your horse's fly mask daily for cleaning and to check for any potential irritation. If you need a quality fly mask that's easy to put on and take off, consider the Cashel Crusader Fly Mask Standard with Ears.

What Is The Purpose Of A Fly Mask?

Imagine having a pesky fly buzzing around your face all day, pretty annoying, right? That's where fly masks come in. They protect your horse's eyes, and sometimes ears and nose, from those annoying flies and also harmful UV rays. They're like sunglasses and a fly swatter rolled into one. The Woof Wear UV Fly Mask Without Ears is a perfect example of a mask that shields your horse's eyes from both flies and sun.

Do Fly Masks Work?

Do carrots help you see in the dark? Well, maybe not, but fly masks certainly help keep those pesky flies at bay. But remember, not all fly masks are created equal. Some, like the Shires Flyguard Pro Fine Mesh Fly Mask With Ears, go the extra mile to provide comprehensive coverage, including the ears.

Should I Get A Fly Mask With Or Without Ears?

To ear or not to ear, that is the question. It's all about your horse's preferences and needs. If your horse's ears are prone to irritation from flies, a mask with ears, such as the Cashel Crusader Fly Mask Standard with Ears, is a great choice. If not, an earless option like the Shires Fine Mesh Earless Fly Mask should do the job.

Can Horses See Through Fly Masks?

Contrary to what it might seem, horses can indeed see through fly masks. The masks are made of mesh material that allows them to see while still providing protection. Think of it as looking through a window screen. With a product like the Shires Fine Mesh Fly Mask With Nose Fringe, your horse will be able to enjoy the view while keeping flies at bay.
