Forum rules and no-advertising policy

As a participant on this forum, it is your responsibility to know and follow our rules. Please read this message in its entirety.

Board Rules

1. You’re responsible for what you say.
As outlined in Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, The Chronicle of the Horse and its affiliates, as well Jelsoft Enterprises Ltd., the developers of vBulletin, are not legally responsible for statements made in the forums.

This is a public forum viewed by a wide spectrum of people, so please be mindful of what you say and who might be reading it—details of personal disputes are likely better handled privately. While posters are legally responsible for their statements, the moderators may in their discretion remove or edit posts that violate these rules. Users have the ability to modify or delete their own messages after posting, but administrators generally will not delete posts, threads or accounts upon request.

Outright inflammatory, vulgar, harassing, malicious or otherwise inappropriate statements and criminal charges unsubstantiated by a reputable news source or legal documentation will not be tolerated and will be dealt with at the discretion of the moderators.

2. Conversations in horse-related forums should be horse-related.
The forums are a wonderful source of information and support for members of the horse community. While it’s understandably tempting to share information or search for input on other topics upon which members might have a similar level of knowledge, members must maintain the focus on horses.

3. Keep conversations productive, on topic and civil.
Discussion and disagreement are inevitable and encouraged; personal insults, diatribes and sniping comments are unproductive and unacceptable. Whether a subject is light-hearted or serious, keep posts focused on the current topic and of general interest to other participants of that thread. Utilize the private message feature or personal email where appropriate to address side topics or personal issues not related to the topic at large.

4. No advertising in the discussion forums.
Posts in the discussion forums directly or indirectly advertising horses, jobs, items or services for sale or wanted will be removed at the discretion of the moderators. Use of the private messaging feature or email addresses obtained through users’ profiles for unsolicited advertising is not permitted.

Company representatives may participate in discussions and answer questions about their products or services, or suggest their products on recent threads if they fulfill the criteria of a query. False "testimonials" provided by company affiliates posing as general consumers are not appropriate, and self-promotion of sales, ad campaigns, etc. through the discussion forums is not allowed.

Paid advertising is available on our classifieds site and through the purchase of banner ads. The tightly monitored Giveaways forum permits free listings of genuinely free horses and items available or wanted (on a limited basis). Items offered for trade are not allowed.

Advertising Policy Specifics
When in doubt of whether something you want to post constitutes advertising, please contact a moderator privately in advance for further clarification. Refer to the following points for general guidelines:

Horses – Only general discussion about the buying, leasing, selling and pricing of horses is permitted. If the post contains, or links to, the type of specific information typically found in a sales or wanted ad, and it’s related to a horse for sale, regardless of who’s selling it, it doesn’t belong in the discussion forums.

Stallions – Board members may ask for suggestions on breeding stallion recommendations. Stallion owners may reply to such queries by suggesting their own stallions, only if their horse fits the specific criteria of the original poster. Excessive promotion of a stallion by its owner or related parties is not permitted and will be addressed at the discretion of the moderators.

Services – Members may use the forums to ask for general recommendations of trainers, barns, shippers, farriers, etc., and other members may answer those requests by suggesting themselves or their company, if their services fulfill the specific criteria of the original post. Members may not solicit other members for business if it is not in response to a direct, genuine query.

Products – While members may ask for general opinions and suggestions on equipment, trailers, trucks, etc., they may not list the specific attributes for which they are in the market, as such posts serve as wanted ads.

Event Announcements – Members may post one notification of an upcoming event that may be of interest to fellow members, if the original poster does not benefit financially from the event. Such threads may not be “bumped” excessively. Premium members may post their own notices in the Event Announcements forum.

Charities/Rescues – Announcements for charitable or fundraising events can only be made for 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organizations. Special exceptions may be made, at the moderators’ discretion and direction, for board-related events or fundraising activities in extraordinary circumstances.

Occasional posts regarding horses available for adoption through IRS-registered horse rescue or placement programs are permitted in the appropriate forums, but these threads may be limited at the discretion of the moderators. Individuals may not advertise or make announcements for horses in need of rescue, placement or adoption unless the horse is available through a recognized rescue or placement agency or government-run entity or the thread fits the criteria for and is located in the Giveaways forum.

5. Do not post copyrighted photographs unless you have purchased that photo and have permission to do so.

6. Respect other members.
As members are often passionate about their beliefs and intentions can easily be misinterpreted in this type of environment, try to explore or resolve the inevitable disagreements that arise in the course of threads calmly and rationally.

If you see a post that you feel violates the rules of the board, please click the “alert” button (exclamation point inside of a triangle) in the bottom left corner of the post, which will alert ONLY the moderators to the post in question. They will then take whatever action, or no action, as deemed appropriate for the situation at their discretion. Do not air grievances regarding other posters or the moderators in the discussion forums.

Please be advised that adding another user to your “Ignore” list via your User Control Panel can be a useful tactic, which blocks posts and private messages by members whose commentary you’d rather avoid reading.

7. We have the right to reproduce statements made in the forums.
The Chronicle of the Horse may copy, quote, link to or otherwise reproduce posts, or portions of posts, in print or online for advertising or editorial purposes, if attributed to their original authors, and by posting in this forum, you hereby grant to The Chronicle of the Horse a perpetual, non-exclusive license under copyright and other rights, to do so.

8. We reserve the right to enforce and amend the rules.
The moderators may delete, edit, move or close any post or thread at any time, or refrain from doing any of the foregoing, in their discretion, and may suspend or revoke a user’s membership privileges at any time to maintain adherence to the rules and the general spirit of the forum. These rules may be amended at any time to address the current needs of the board.

Please see our full Terms of Service and Privacy Policy for more information.

Thanks for being a part of the COTH forums!

Talk to me about Farnam Endure fly spray

  • Talk to me about Farnam Endure fly spray

    I hate flies *sigh*
    So far I've tried 2 different brands with no success. I checked the thread on the best fly spray but none of those brands are sold in europe and the shipping price is just ridiculous. So I came across Farnam Endure Sweat Resistant Fly Spray.

    It seems to have good reviews, but I wonder if any of you have used it and what was your experience with it.

    TIA
    Yes, I smell like a horse. No, I don't consider that to be a problem.

    I like it, it's not my preferred but I do think it works well. If horse is in heavy training, gets rinsed often, or sweats a lot I don't think it lasts quite as long as they say but it does last much longer than the traditional water based ones I've tried. My current favorite is Pyrhana but I'm not sure it is available in Europe.

    I have used the Endure on several horses that have very sensitive skin and react to all sorts of sprays etc and seemed to do the job without making them react.
    Michael: Seems the people who burned me want me for a job.
    Sam: A job? Does it pay?
    Michael: Nah, it's more of a "we'll kill you if you don't do it" type of thing.
    Sam: Oh. I've never liked those.

          It's what I use and it works well, I agree with other posters that it won't last nearly as long as the label states.

            Likewise, I love it. VERY expensive, but lasts well for pasture ornaments. One thing I find it has zero impact on is Texas sized horseflies. Literally they ignore it. It does keep off the mosquitoes, gnats, cow flies etc, but those horseflies just hang on in there.

              Heck, if it lasts as long as he's being riden, I'll be happy with it. I tried the cheaper stuff and the flies weren't even bothered. Well, I killed one but that's because it was a direct hit with the spray
              Would be great if it lasts while he's in his stall as well, though I've already set some fly traps.

              And nope, they don't sell Pyrhana in Europe. You can't even find it on ebay or amazon.

                I like Pyrhana and Endure.

                The Endure has a nice clean smell.

                Pyrhana in the aerosol can works better than the trigger sprayer type.

                I don't find that either works after hosing.

                      We use Endure and it seems to work well for us. I don't mind the smell and I haven't had any problems with skin reactions. I would recommend giving it a try!

                        Endure never worked for me. Pyranah is my first choice. UltraSheild is second choice, made by Absorbine. I don't know if it's available where you are.

                          Neither Pyranah or UltraSheild are available here, but with all the positive votes on Endure I think I'll take my chances. (and pray because that Endure is freaking expensive!)

                            Endure has worked in the, "if I spray it on the flies as they're hovering around my horse, they fall down" way.

                            But other than that? Seems like minutes later and they're back, bugging him. (so to speak)

                            I was figuring I'd have to upgrade to Pyranha.

                                I used Endure a few years ago and liked it. BUT, last night (coincidentally), sprayed it on both horses and both of them got huge hives... Not sure if the formula changed in the last few years, but now I can't use Endure on mine....

                                  It seems to be the only thing that really works. Kind of expensive so I buy the gallon jar and use it to fill a spray bottle. That is the only spray I use these days.

                                    I love Endure. It is worth every penny to keep my sensitive skinned mare from welting up from bug bites.

                                      I'm a fan! Endure is my second-choice after UltraShield. Both are good!

                                        I use it and like it. I spray it on RIGHT BEFORE heading out of the barn to ride...as in, already tacked up, gloves on, helmet on, whip under the arm, ready to walk out. It lasts through the ride, generally (if maresy doesn't get too sweaty).

                                        But, like most fly sprays, it is short-lived, especially in sweaty climates or when doing a lot of hosing off after rides. But, to keep the crazy-head-shakes down during the ride, it's useful.
