Flies love to torment a horse, and if you spend a few minutes watching it you will clearly see this for yourself. Their mane will constantly flutter, the tail swooshing back and forth, the forever twitching body parts. Before you know it, the horses are doing a little dance just to keep the pestering flies away. Thankfully, there is a natural way to keep those annoying bugs away and also help promote a horse’s health in the process.
Fly Away Garlic is an equine health supplement that will help you ward off these flies for good. All you do is mix it in with their grain at feeding time, and let the work begin. The supplement gets into the horse’s system, and eventually ends up as a substance in their piles that prevents the attraction of flies. The scent will also be absorbed in their body to potentially keep the pests from landing on them so much. I knew garlic kept vampires away, but I never knew it was a natural bug-be-gone too. What is great about this product is that it also gives your horse the benefits of garlic, such as supporting healthy immune and respiratory systems. With the antiviral, antifungal and antibacterial properties, it also gives you added protection against common diseases carried by nature’s other pests, the mosquito.
However, Be careful with this product as some people report that extensive use of garlic in performance horses can lead to anemia. Please check with your veterinarian and/or do more research on using garlic in horses before using.
