What’s that sound? The sound of summer?? Oh wait, it’s………….
I…… HATE…….FLIES. But even more than I hate them, the horses hate them! Every horse owner knows the struggle of bug control in the summer. I can’t say it enough!!!! YUK!!!!!!!!!!!!
You’re riding along and your horse is literally contorting his/her body like a snake under you and it takes every bit of strength and willpower for you to stay on – FLY
You’re trying to enjoy that peaceful grooming time with your horse and all is well until he throws his head up slamming into yours and giving you a migraine – FLY
You’re bent over picking out your horse’s feet and he/she gives you whiplash with their tail – FLY
You JUST had the farrier come and shoe your horse, but he/she spent the last 24 hours stomping their feet so hard that the shoes are all bent and falling off – FLIESSSS
Get the picture? I have spent mucho $$$$$$ and time on expensive fly sprays, only to literally watch the flies wait about 5 seconds before attacking my horse again. WHAT GIVES?
This year, I am trying something NEW. Starting on the inside to work on the outside… and we all know I LOVE a natural product, right?
BUG CHECK contains garlic, grape seed and yeast. I will feed it to my princess pony/guinea pig Serenade and when she sweats, she will omit a strange garlicy odor which HOPEFULLY the flies will detest, i.e. STAY AWAY! It’s worth a try???
Here’s hoping for a fly-free summer…!!!
