Horsemanship Tip of the Month

Stretching Your Horse Dollar
All of us horse people realize how costly it can be to own, board or lease a horse. One predominant expense during this time of year is fly spray. Regardless of the brand or what a particular bottle may proclaim, fly spray is only effective for a short amount of time, and then must be reapplied. The very best and one of the least expensive fly sprays is the following:
1. 4 ounces of Repel-X fly spray concentrate
2. 30 ounces of water and 30 ounces of white vinegar.
Mix all the ingredients together. This fills two traditional size fly spray bottles and costs about $4 a bottle, compared to the normal $8 to $20 other fly spray costs. Also, a former Showsheen bottle makes an excellent fly spray bottle because it is less likely to clog. Have fun riding and enjoy helping your horse be fly-free!!!
