I currently have a pretty old pony that doesn’t handle the irritation of flies well. I’ve been using this on him all summer and have had really good results.
Immediately the flies leave him alone in his stall when I spray him down before he goes outside for the evening. Then, the next morning when he goes to come in for the day, he is much more comfortable.
I use an old apple cider vinegar glass bottle for this spray. It’s a nice thick glass and when using essential oils, you want to avoid plastic as much as possible. Surprisingly the bottle fits a standard spray top, which I got from an old fly spray.
Now I don’t have scientific proof of how effective or ineffective this is compared to the store bought fly sprays. But I have seen a big difference in my horses comfort and significant decrease in flies on the horse immediately after using it.
Thank-you for taking time out of your day to hang out here!
