Re: [RC] Stupid Question - Yearling and Bug Spray - drhopkins


Definately start with water in the spray bottle so that you can be certain 
that it is the spraying and not the fly spray that the horse objects to.  I 
have a very well mannered paint mare that would go crazy when we used fly 
spray, yet didn't object to spray-in mane and tail conditioner.  I bought some 
natural fly spray-Absorbine Supersheild Green and she doesn't object to it.  
She would also roll in the mud more with the chemical vs the natural fly 
spray.  Obviously, the chemical fly spray was bothering her sensitive skin. 

Good Luck,
