I have a dark bay mare, and I want to keep her a dark bay. Keeping her in during the day is not an option, so my plan is to get a good fly sheet. So, what is a good fly sheet to use? Also, has anyone seen any amazing results with the coat enhancer supplements? Or is it just a waste of money?
I find the Rambo sheets to be most effective at keeping bugs and sun at bay. Spray-on sun blocker can work well if you follow directions. I've never had luck with supplements, though I have friends who swear by paprika.
This is what DD's black mare wears, and I would get another in a second. It's lasted through 2.5 summers - not bad as she lives outside 24/7 so wears it all the time. It keeps her black, is cool enough she can wear it even in our disgusting heat, and does keep bugs off well. She gets welts from flies, so we'd know if it didn't. Oh, and they're on sale!
