One more product review of the day.
So as it gets hotter, horses get sweatier, thus more flies bothering horses.
I’ve tried at least 10 different flysprays, mainly the Bronco brand, Marigold, Ultra-Shield, etc.
I saw this brand at my local tack store about 3 years, and decided to give it a try. It’s all natural, no chemicals or artificial stuff. The flyspray they make is 1000x better than any brand I got from Dover. I’d apply it to Gideon before I tack him up, and even after an hour of riding or hours at a show, he’s free from flies. I’m hooked on this product, and since it pertains to the well being and comfort of my horse, there’s no lie that these products are amazing.
They make 5 different things:
Toad Juice- an antibacterial, anti-fungus remover, and for itchy/irritated skin. In the summer, Gideon gets irritated skin the bottom of his back legs. I spray this, and the fungus is gone within a day.
Toad Mist- the best flyspray you’ll ever use. Keeps flies away for hours. It’s all I buy now.
Toad Jelly- fly repellent shampoo. I had this last year, and lightly used it on Gideon’s face, legs, and under belly, before he would go out in his field. I’d come out in the evening after him being turned out, and he’d still be fly free.
Toad Stick- a balm used on raw skin, and also lightly colors horses- I used this ALL. THE. TIME. on my previous horse, Erin, who was a grey. It prevents sunburns on sensitive skin such as noses.
Toad Jam- pretty much a Neosporin for horses. Used on cuts and scraps. Not only protects it from infections, but also keeps bugs and insects out of the wound.
I’ve already purchased the mist, juice, and jelly for the summer. I can’t rave about this product enough. Plus, not only is it great for horses, but it can also be used on other animals such as dogs and cats (I’ve also sprayed my bunny with the mist to keep flies away, and since it’s all natural, it won’t hurt him.)
