"spot on" type fly repellant - was Re: [RC] Cremello's - Rosalie Marley

I used a similar product, at strategic spots on the horses' legs and
toplines - but only on my non-riding horses, as I was afraid it would be a
problem under a saddle. Am I over-thinking this?  

What are other people's  experiences?  The product I used was oily. It was
effective but attracted lots of dirt (which showed up on my grey and
white-patterened horses).

I have a buckskin paint that reacts in silver dollar sized welts to
mosquito bites.  I have had great success for the last two years using
nothing but "Freedom Spot On".  It's like Advantage or Frontline.  A
little tube of oil, strategically placed on the horse's body (where they
are most succeptable) here and there.  Once every two weeks.  Never use
fly spray.  Actually ends up being cheaper when I buy it on sale at
Petsmart, and much less work!  And works even when the horse sweats
because it's not topical.  :)
