Why did you choose this?
Will the large fit a drat horse?
Best Answer: I usually buy the regular kensington fly masks. I decided to try the catchmask. I found that it ran a size smaller than the regular fly masks. My 1000 morgan was wearing a medium in the regular kensington fly masks so that is what I order for the catchmask. It was smaller than the regular fly masks so I think that the catch masks run a liltle smaller in size. You might want to order it a little bigger than what your horse normally wears.
what about size?
Best Answer: My horses are standard-size quarter horses & a mixed breed thoroughbred.
I use large for all of then. The Velcro under throat latch makes easy size adjustment but mostly I make tightest. They are excellent quality, very durable; look very classy as can match to color & stay on well out to pasture. My horses like them & put out there heads for them. I put on in morning & take off at night. I've used these masks exclusively for a couple years & are my favorites by far. On sale often at great price. There's opening at Velcro to attach a lead role when you wish - very handy nice catch feature.
Did it give your horse any sores?
Best Answer: he won't keep it on long enough to find out. it is pretty loose on him so it does not rub. but he tends to tear off his fly masks. i have not seen any sores
can the horse see well with this mask on? Can it be used while riding trails?
Best Answer: My horses see well when out in the field in sunlight but I believe they don't see as well at night. I presently have my 2 turned out 24/7 with run in sheds and I notice they can see but not as well in the mornings when I feed and it's still dark. I don't believe I would use it on trails if you are going through wooded areas of varying light.
Does this mask provide UV protection?
Best Answer: It would be just a minimal amount of protection
