Horses and Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope

Horses and Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope

If you have read our blogs regarding the scientific evidence that biting insects like mosquitoes, black flies, noseeums, chiggers, and ticks are attracted to the their prey by the carbon dioxide flume that human and animals give off when they breathe, what about horses?

Since 1882, Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope has protected humans from all biting insects by interfering with an insect's ability to detect carbon dioxide.  Although the carbon dioxide flume of a horse is more significant that a human flume, why cannot Ole Time Woodsman work in the same way?

Would it not be great to be out riding, without your partner not twitching and in pain from biting insects? 

Unlike chemical repellents that require the whole body to be covered, Ole Time Woodsman Fly Dope just needs a few dabs to do ya!  Just put a few drops on the harness, mane, or nose band.

Just took this camping this weekend, put some on a bandana just like when I was a kid. Not a bite! Thank you!
