My mare has a horrible allergic reaction to insect bites. I need to keep her protected as much as possible with fly sheet, etc. However legs and belly would still get attacked. Tried "defy the fly" this year and so far working great. legs look good and No bites/sores on her belly. Seems to be helping!

Works great but breaks quickly
These really do seem to keep the flies at bay. However, the plastic cracks very quickly and then they fall off. Wish it was more durable.

Love the ankle bands
This is our second summer using the ankle Defly-the-fly bands on our horses. They don't last the whole summer, but for the price we replace them when we need to. Our horses are pasture 24/7 so these bands help them. They seem to stomp less than the other horses who don't have ankle bands on. One of our horses lost a band just the other day after having it on for 3 weeks and we couldn't find it. But she still has the other three and we'll replace them when these three have worn out.

Comfort: 5

Durability: 4

Not as great of a product as I thought they would be.
I really thought the leg bands would be better than they are. Right away, my mare lost one. Then a few days later she lost another one. They did seem to deter the flies some, but not as well as I expected. If using for horses that are in a stall or dry lot I think they would be fine, but they just don't work so well for a horse out at pasture.

I used these several years ago. The flies are really bad this year so I will use them again. It works longer and more continuously than fly spray!

My husband's quarter horse is sensitive to flies and was constantly stomping her legs through our buggy Florida summers. This gave her and her hooves some relief.

My horse is sensitive to fly bites. When these stay on they help her.
Llorye F on May 23, 2017
It worked great for us last summer. Our horses weren't stomping their feet in the pasture as much as the other horses. We think it's because of the fly bands. And our horses don't loose them and don't mind wearing them.

My horse has side bone issues and I thought this might help him to stomp less
Mary a on Aug 30, 2016
I can't be there all the time to spray him down and I want him to be as comfortable as possible through the summer season.

BEST ANSWER: I'm a customer so I don't know that but they did work great for my big gelding who has allergies to flies. The neck band might work but I think the leg bands may be too large even though they have two adjustments
I have a horse who is allergic to Culicoides (the midges which cause Sweet Itch. Does this product keep those from biting?
Pam M on Mar 31, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Effective against flies, fleas, mosquitoes, ticks and "no-see-ums".
Will these fit a small cob size horse?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bands have 2 snaps for adjusting. I used the smaller size on my thoroughbred front and the larger snap size for the back. The bands may stay on your cob, but I would think it would be a loose fit. The bands work well for the price.
do you put on all four legs at same time?
A shopper on Jun 18, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I used all four at the same time.
SAVE the bag they come in as you will need it, if it is going to rain.
Leg bands should not get wet.
Can you leave these on when it's raining??
A shopper on May 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can ,take them off for anything else bathing,cooldowns.bease they spray will remove the chemical that is imbed in each faster
