They are one of the best things since sliced bread!!!
Get some. You will not regret it.
I have three horses: a big boned 15.3 hand gelding, a 15.2 gelding, and a 14.2 gelding with little ankles. A medium works for them all. The smaller horse could probably get away with the size small, but I haven't had a problem with the medium.

Really saves on flyspray too! I only get 1 season out of them but my horses live outside 24/7. I have heard Donna's Bug Boots and Stomp Stoppers are good too, I just haven't tried those brands to compare.

I found all the mentioned ones on FB. They are all similar in price.
Im looking for the one that does best in a turn-out situation. My horse has stall and pasture access 24/7. Can NOT keep a fly mask on her so not sure if these will last but somthings gotta give! The flies are bleeding her dry!

Love these. I have an old guy that cannot wear clothes. He shreds everything. He wore his shoo-flys 24/7 all last summer and I stuck them back on a month ago. They look a little raggedy but they're still doing the job.
I have one mare who can't wear the backs. They're TOUCHING HER which she cannot abide so she'll pick her legs up extra high and make herself really sore in the hips.

I love them! I broke down and ordered a set.....they work great. However my 2 year old somehow keeps pulling the front ones off - completely undone! Any suggestions? I can't keep fly masks or blankets on her either......

I'm totally the odd person out on here. I purchased front and hinds for 3 horses. After a week all 3 had managed to rip them off at one time or another. Just sitting in the corner of the barn until I try again for the 20th time.

Just got my first sets last night and put them on. Was missing one this morning but found it and put it back on. I will say going forward, I will leave them off during the night and put them on in the morning, as down in where I live, we're still getting a heavy dew on the grass at night, so they were sopping wet this morning. I don't that moisture held in on the coronary band all day from them getting so wet at night, so i'll take them off going forward in the evenings and put them back on at morning feeding.

I got 3 sets earlier this week. I bought small for my 15 hand horse. Hers are staying on. I bought mediums for my 16h gelding and my 15.2 two year ago. My gelding’s all stayed on until today - he has a front one missing.
My two year old learned how to get her front ones off immediately. And I CANNOT keep a front one on her for any amount of time. She is a nosy trouble maker, so this isn’t surprising.
They do seem to function as theyre supposed to. Before these, I used Defy The Fly leg bands which also seemed to work well, but I was checking daily for rubs.
Just my review for anybody looking in to these! I would recommend them for horses that would leave them alone.
