Photo Challenge: No Flies on These 13 Horses

If your horse requires a ton of anti-fly, anti-sun gear to stay happy in the summer, these readers feel your pain.

Ah, the noble horse… sometimes, even the noblest of creatures needs a little help keeping their cool, from sun gear to fly gear (and in many cases, both). Here are 13 reader-submitted horses all decked out for the best/worst that summer has to offer.

It is difficult finding draft sized fly gear, but we manage! This is Fergie the percheron. Photo by Kelsey Quack.

Mekaela McKanna: ou can all most hear my appy thinking “I’m getting to old for this silliness” I took this picture of my two ponies after getting dressed up for a buggy day.

Finn is unimpressed, but I think he secretly likes his little pink booties. Photo by Maria Casey.

Poor Curtis and his mismatched turnout gear. Looks like a gullygalloh lol #horsenation
