    Shires Fine Mesh Fly Mask - Full Face w/ Ears is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great design Used this for the first time and it was the perfect solution for my horse who despises flies and gnats in her eyes. went on easily, kept its shape standing away from her eyes and my mare never tried to rub it off.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite fly mask but - size down! Love these fly masks! They are cushioned where it matters, the shape makes sense, and they stay on IF you size down. I have 5 horses ranging from 15.2hh to 16.2hh all with a kinda chunky build and I am SO GLAD I ordered cob size this time. It fits them all with plenty of wiggle room. The horse size ones I ordered last time got donated to my friend's 19hh draft mare. Not sure how they come up with this sizing, but I'm happy with a quality product just don't forget to size down!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely love! My mare is SUPER particular about her fly masks. She is a 17.2hh Dutch WB with HUGE ears so lots of masks do not fit her, this mask is great! She also has a pink nose and huge white blaze that loves to burn in the South Georgia sun and this mask protects her from the burns!! It’s excellent! I love the stretchy part around the pole and jaw. She’s actually comfortable and doesn’t take it off!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from If it would only stay on I really like this fly mask and I bought for the UV protection as I have a white horse with pink nose skin. Negative; it doesn’t stay on. The part that goes around the throat is very flexible and stretches. I’m not sure if my horse is getting it off or a pasture buddy is doing it. The other masks I use that never come off is the Cashel but it has no UV protection. I really do like this mask. The screen is softer quality is good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from 10 months old and still doesn't need replacement This is my experience with fly masks I have purchased over the last two decades: within months, my horse ends up with a mask with eye holes which makes it pretty useless. The Shires mask is still going strong after 10 months! Not a hole anywhere. Last month, I did have to sew up a hole in the ear part he snagged on a branch in his pasture, otherwise, this mask looks like new. Do be aware the nose piece is too long on most horses, but if you wish, it zips right off. And, because the throat latch area is elasticized - made to be comfortable for your horse and for a better fit - it can be easier for a nasty pasture mate to pull it off. I put bitter apple on it for a few days and that behavior stopped. All in all, the best fly mask I have ever tried. Runs large. My 15.3 Arab takes a Cob size.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally, a mask that stays on. I purchased this mask because my Paint gelding was recently diagnosed with skin cancer on his eyelid and I needed high UV protection to prevent it from getting worse. In the past 14 years I have never found a fly mask that he will keep on for longer than a few hours. He has been wearing his Shires mask 24 hours a day for over two months now and has only ever taken it off twice. The mask is made well and the blue color is beautiful. I love the addition of the long nose piece to protect his pink nose. I am so happy with this mask, especially for the great price at SmartPak!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very pleased with this mask! I can't tell you how many fly masks i've tried and have been utterly disappointed in; well not this one. This mask is wonderful for many reasons. It is vibrant in color, it has wonderful padding in sensitive areas; and best of all -- it stays OFF my horse's eyes and the mesh is SO clear and easy for the horses to see through. Will absolutely buy again. Mine look new after a full season of use.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best mask EVER! I bought this about a month ago. My Appy has a large jaw, hard to fit. I needed a mask to cover his nose (got sunburn with blisters) and ears (had warts in his ears from flies), and one that would stay on!! This has double Velcro straps that kept it on for days, a nice stretchy, fleecy edge to the poll area, fleece over the seam that runs over the nose to prevent rubbing. I was putting a halter over my Cashel to keep it in place. This one, without. It also has the UV protection for his eyes, so that it wards off the uveitis know to Appaloosa and fair-skinned horses. Much more comfortable, easy to wash up, and my horse stays happy. Highly recommended, especially at the very reasonable price! Protect your horse, priceless in my mind.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful fly mask I bought this for a silly off the track thoroughbred. So far it's held up to other horses playing with her and it doesn't bother her sensitive self and skin.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from The zipper broke in 4 days I was looking for a fly mask with UV protection for my guy's pink nose. This fit the bill! First, these run large. My 17.2hh horse wears oversize in halters, bridles, and every other fly mask I've ever purchased. Still, I always measure. Smartpak didn't have a size chart on this fly mask, but I found it at Shire's and also noticed the other Shire's fly masks at Smartpak seem to have the chart. My horse measured Full/Horse. I was skeptical and ordered expecting to return - been there, done that. Nope. It fit perfectly. I'd recommend anyone shopping, go and find the size chart and measure first. I like the fit, it provided good clearance over the eyes and the nose attachment extended down past my horse's muzzle. Unfortunately the nose attachment is held on by a zipper, with no back up Velcro or anything. It looked flimsy, but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. Surely everyone puts super duty zippers on horse clothing? Nope. My horse, who's never broken or lost a fly mask in his life, broke the zipper on this thing in less than 4 nights of turn out. Prior to it breaking, I was noticing another issue. The nose piece wraps around the muzzle and covers the nostrils. Condensation and nasal secretion gunk built up in the mesh and it attracted dirt, drying to a thin but impervious layer of grime, right over my horse's nostrils. The material isn't easy to scrub clean (unlike the material covering the eyes), so it took some work to remove the caked on mix, but I really didn't want to leave it for my horse to inhale through. The part of the fly mask that isn't the nose attachment is much easier to spray clean, it dries fast, and it's still intact and looking good. I'm going to try to put in some heavy duty Velcro to reattach the nose portion, plus trim it back and restitch the border to get the mesh clear of my horse's nostrils. I really just need a strip of it to keep his nose from burning and it's already technically destroyed, so what's the worst that can happen? Unfortunately, I can't recommend this. I assume anyone buying it is buying it for the nose piece and it's attachments are flimsy enough that I'm shocked this lasts on any horse.
