Here's how she keeps the flys at bay with her horses:
"What can be better than free fly repellent!
Well we have problems with my horse getting bad dandruff and patchy and loose hair from fly spray,so something we do is spray them with the hose (only good in warm and hot weather).
2 of our 9 horses don't like getting sprayed so we put actual fly spray on them,but the other 7 love getting spayed!
Every day at about 11:00 am the horses come up and wait for me to hook up the hose and spray them,and after I'm done they go and sniff out a good a dusty place and then they role in the dust, creating mud on their fur,it's excellent on helping you four legged friend to get rid of those pesky flies, AND it can help keep them cool on a hot day 🙂
A big thanks to Shylee for that one.
