Fly Season Is Here!

Flies can be a nuisance for horses during the warmer months, causing both physical and mental irritation that can lead to distress. Fortunately, fly masks are an effective way to keep flies and other insects at bay. WeatherBeeta offers a range of over 25 different styles of fly masks, ensuring there is a perfect fit for every horse and pony.

Fly masks not only protect horses from irritating flies, but also offer UV protection for the sensitive skin around the eyes. The fine mesh material used in WeatherBeeta's ComFiTec Deluxe fine mesh mask allows for easy adaptation and does not hinder a horse's vision, while adjustable Velcro straps provide a secure fit. This style is also available with or without ears, and with or without a nose cover.

For horses with small forelocks, the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec durable mesh mask with ears is a great option. The durable mesh keeps flies at bay and the soft fleece lining around the edge of the mask ensures the horse's comfort throughout the day.

It's important to remember that flies can bite horses all over their body, not just their face. Fly sheets are another important protective measure that allow air to circulate while protecting the horse's coat and body from bites. WeatherBeeta offers a range of over 10 different styles and combinations of fly sheets to complement their fly masks.

One popular option is the WeatherBeeta ComFiTec Airflow II Detach-a-Neck, designed specifically with breathability in mind. This mesh sheet not only protects horses from flies, but also helps to keep them cool and comfortable during warmer weather.

Overall, fly masks and fly sheets are important tools for horse owners to protect their animals from the irritating and potentially harmful effects of flies and other insects. WeatherBeeta's range of fly masks and sheets offer a variety of styles and features to ensure every horse can stay comfortable and protected all summer long.
