Dear Springtime,

We're glad we got our horses started on the Bug Off Garlic for horses early. It's only April, and the flying insects are everywhere. But there are next to none on the horses! In the past, our old horses had flies attached to their top lines and legs. Gnats would climb into their ears and draw blood. Now, the gnats try to land but leave. Our horses aren't stomping around or swishing their tails as much as would be expected with gnats and flies everywhere. One of our horses, Big Mac, is 39 and the flies used to eat him alive, but not anymore.
