Guide Review - Absorbine UltraShield Fly Bonnet
Like most fly masks and bonnets this one is made for stable and pasture use only. A horse or pony wearing a fly bonnet may have reduced vision. Therefore, take the bonnet or mask off before riding or driving. For the horse’s own safety masks and bonnets should be removed in low light conditions or rain.
