Hey Everyone,
So I have recently heard about a study where is you paint stripes on your horse the files will not bite. I wanted to know your opinions on this. What do you think? Have you/will you try it? Let me know. I am very interested in this.


Thank You

I wouldn't do it. If I really wanted to try the stripes theory I would just get a zebra fly sheet. I don't think it works that well.

It sounds ridiculous and I like aerosal flyspray more than anything so I'm not giving that up

I've heard of this but I personally wouldn't paint my horse cuz it would probably look pretty ridiculous. Buy a zebra fly sheet instead

Thanks Abra!
