Ferrell Hollow Farm Fly Spray

Traveller's Rest Equine Elders Sanctuary recently received two bottles of Ferrell Hollow Farm Natural Fly Spray. Now I will admit, I was more than a little skeptical about this product since it smells more like salad dressing than like fly repellent. I beleived that something that smelled so yummy to me would smell yummy to flies as well. of this morning, I highly recommend this spray to anyone seeking alternatives to chemical repellents. We tried the spray during hoof trims, and the farrier himself commented on the results.

We also received two bottles of coat spray, which we haven't tried yet, but after what we saw with the fly spray this morning, can't wait to try it out. According to the product description, "Natural Coat Spray is wonderful to brush off sweat and grime, condition the coat, soften dry manes and tails, soothe itchy skin and insect bites and leave them with a beautiful shine." We have just the guinea pig.......Josh! He's had problems with dry coat and itchies since he arrived. We'll see what happens. If it works for him, I'd have to say it would work for most any horse.

Ferrell Hollow Farm is a Tennessee facility that "specializes in Full Pasture Boarding for Senior and Special Needs Horses." For more information, please visit their web site and be sure to check out the "Products" page.

Thanks, Cindy!
