    Default Fly mask that holds up to pasture-mate shenanigans?

    2 month old Crusader fly mask already has 4 giant rips in it. Halter tag and just chewing on each other's faces seems to be the main source of entertainment in my gelding's turnout.

    Any suggestions for a really really tough fly mask? Or perhaps I should just buy a bunch of cheap ones?

    The Kensington Catch Mask seems to be really, really sturdy.

    I have to use either rambo or cashel fly masks due t o Cloudy's long lashes and protruding eyes but...........both brand have held up to barns with lots of tree branches and briars (masks got pulled off when he ate leaves off of briars) and other horses pulling his masks off because he wanted them to do that.

    I still have 3 and 4 yr old fly masks by rambo and cashel crusader.

    Haven't tested it out myself, but the Professional's Choice mask supposedly comes with a warranty. Might check into that!

    Try Chew Stop or Bitter Apple on the mask...your horse won't be as interesting to chew on.

    These also work great on fly sheets and blankets when your horse has a jerk in the field destroying your expensive Rambos.
