This horse of mine has gone through at least 4 masks in the past 4 years. And by "gone through" I mean SHREDDED. Plus I know he rarely comes back in from turnout with it still on. When we had the big pastures I spent many a morning fetching fly masks from the far corners of the field.
Here's the last two... and one of them had been repaired several times before it was no longer reparable. Not sure why either of them are still in my possession... I think I had some stupid idea that I would try to salvage parts of them but they'll be in the dumpster tomorrow. Ain't nobody got time for that.
So why do I even try? Four reasons. 1. Because this princess of a horse has a cyst in his right eye that should be shielded from UV rays in hopes that it doesn't get any bigger. 2. I'm a horrible person who shaves the inside of his ears for show season. 3. His pink nose can use the UV protection, too. 4. Flies, of course.
This time I'm going to try the regular nose instead of the extended since the barn staff are actually willing to sunscreen his widdle nose before he goes out. Perhaps he'll find the shorter nose less annoying and less of a handle for his Brofiend to yank on. I've heard he's been leaving his Brofriend's mask on, so maybe this'll be the year I keep a mask a whole season.
We took advantage of Smartpak's free Barn Saver shipping as well as the complimentary personalization.
So here it is. The final try.
