The Idea of Order: Fly Masks

Not a solid fashion statement…

It’s that time of year… you know, when you do everything in your power to protect your horse from bothersome insects only to have him thwart all your efforts by destroying $$$$ in gear. It’s that last part that I’ll blame for forcing me to purchase the dregs of fly masks. I mean seriously, after Stormy has destroyed four in under two weeks I stop caring if it’s a reasonable black mask or a zebra striped monstrosity. I may in fact be guilty of owning the “pink bunny nightmare” of a fly mask too, however, I can say that I have never forced any of my horses to don the mask with the eyes painted on it…. yet anyhow.

Go Riding!

Morgane Schmidt Gabriel is a 33-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 7-year-old Dutch gelding, and Stormy, her friend’s nearly all white paint gelding with a penchant for finding every mud hole and pee spot in existence.
