[RC] Fly Repellants - Kitley, Carrie E Civ USAF AFSPC 30 MDSS/SGSLF

I know this is a small thing and probably been brought up 1000 times before I 
joined, but (to get off the BLM/wild horses, non-endurance subject, lol) I'm 
wondering what people find is the best product for repelling flies.  And has 
anyone ever used those equine bio-spot products with any success?  My Senior 
Citizen gets scabby legs from fly bites and I'd like to fine something that 
really works for longer than 10 mins.  :)
Also, has anyone heard what the smoke/particulate content is in the Santa Cruz 
area.  Fireworks ride is coming up Aug. 2nd.  :)  A little irony in the ride 
name there.  lol

Subject: [RC] re: question on using DMSO sweat wrap

I was very interested in the thread on what folks use post-ride.  I tend to be 
minimalist, too.  However, somewhere in the thread there was a discussion on 
DMSO/furacin sweats for injury and someone said something about only leaving it 
on for a brief time period...a few hours, I think.  Anyhow, my very experienced 
equine vet always recommends ice, then a DMSO/furacin sweat for a serious 
injury and says to leave it on for 48 hours.  So, I'm interested in hearing 
more from the RC vets about this topic.  Thanks.  Cindy
