2 Ways To Keep Flies Away From Horses

P1030750

Fly season is upon us my equestrian friends.  But have no fear, I’m here!  In this post, I’m going to have a recipe and a product that helps with fly problems. 🙂

#1

Shoofly Leggins.  I just got these yesterday, and I’m so happy with how they work!  We got orange, because that was the only color available and I’m too inpatient, and the size we got was medium for Dezzle and Percy, who are both sixteen hands.  They’re a little bit on the pricey side, $55.00, but it’s for all four legs.

This lemon fly spray recipe is amazing and it’s so easy to make!  Here’s what you need to make it.

1 large mason jar

Spray bottle

Warm water

12 drops lemongrass essential oil

12 drops citronella essential oil

And a little bit of apple cider vinegar

Once you have all your supplies and ingredients, fill up your large mason jar up with warm water.  Then mix in the rest of your ingredients.  I put in a little bit less than 1/4 cup of apple cider vinegar into the jar.

Then shake it all up!

Then I just pour some of the fly spay into this spray bottle.  I takes me about two times to empty the jar into the spray bottle.  This is way cheaper than buying fly spray.  And you know what’s all in it too.  But like all fly spray, it doesn’t keep the insects away forever.

Last night, when we first put on the Shoofly Leggins the horses were running around funny because they’ve never had anything on their hooves and legs.  But if your horses are use to that, then I’m sure they will have no trouble with them on.  But our horses have finally figured out that they’re not stomping as much!

Look how happy they are!  What do you do to keep the flies away?  Have a great day, bye!

WE MIGHT HAVE A NEW PET FAMILY MEMBER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  YEAH!!!!!!!!!

So a few weeks ago I was walking outside, then I found this super friendly black cat, and we posted about him on Facebook but no one owned him, so my parents said me might get to keep him!  Oh!  And his name is Jack!

One of the things that I love about Jack is that he loves Roxie!  Today I took some pictures of them together for you to see.  Enjoy!

Then I just took some pictures of Roxie.

I really hope I get to keep Jack!  He is so nice.

I was also wondering, what kind of posts do you want to see on this blog?  Please tell me in the comments!

Well, bye for now!
