I have mentioned before the trouble we have with fly masks. Firstly, the ponies are constantly losing them. Secondly, they tear many holes in the ears. Since the main reason they wear them is because they get terrible bites inside their ears, the holes make the masks practically useless.
This week I decided to do something about it so I marched into our local tack shop and demanded a mask with heavy duty ears. I came away with a LeMieux one which has two layers of nice thick fabric on the ears and which will hopefully do the trick.
Galahad has been wearing it now for three days and has managed to lose it three times.
However, so far the ears have no holes at all so I am very hopeful.
I have never owned anything from LeMieux before – I feel like a proper equestrian!
