Have You Ever Frosted a Donkey?

Fun fact: Donkeys do not have the same nerve endings in their legs as horses so when a fly bites or lands on them they do not stomp to get them off! This leads to sore fly eaten legs...

Swat and Zinc

Here at GSH we have come up with a concoction of zinc oxide and Swat that works great to keep the flies off and heal old bites. Simply apply it to their legs like you are frosting them! We also like using Shoo-fly flyboots to help them as well.
