Fly season isn’t in full buzz, just yet, but there are enough of the pesky critters crawling around the horse’s eyes, that I put fly masks on.
The horses don’t seem to mind and it makes me feel better. Also, we have fewer instances of swollen and goopy eyes.
Of course, we have a whole variety of fly masks. Some, we were given, and some we bought.
Another accessory I have recently added to our horse-wear collection is neck collars from Perri’s Leather. I did not price shop, so there is likely a better deal out there, but these are pretty!
They go around the neck (hence are called neck collars…doh) and are leather. They can break or slip off if a horse were to get hung up on something. I also got fancy brass plates with the horse’s name and our phone numbers that Perri’s engraved and attached. In case of an emergency evacuation, oh say for fire (our major threat), the animals are “labelled”. Plus, you can use them as a handy way to catch and lead without having to go for a halter from the tack room!
Have a a nice weekend!
