Designed in the UK and based on the popular horse fly mask, the Field Relief Max, this standard donkey fly mask with ears is specially designed for our other equine friends.
The fit of the fly mask.
This fly mask covers the ears, eyes, and nose of your donkey. However, the nosepiece is removable and adjustable to suit your donkey’s preferences.
The mask features adjustable fastenings under the cheeks which are elasticated. This ensures the perfect fit and stops any nasty insects from getting inside the mask.
Strategically placed darts on the front of the mask help keep it away from the face. Therefore, the mask stays clear of the donkey’s eyes and eyelashes.
The soft sponge padding on the nose and brow areas helps to prevent rubbing.
The mesh of the donkey fly mask.
There are two types of mesh. One is rigid for the central panel to give it structure. The other is super soft for the rest of the mask to maximize comfort. The soft mesh is also elasticated not only for effectiveness and comfort but so it can fit a wide range of face shapes and sizes.
The mesh provides an effective barrier from midges, mosquitoes, and flies, but it also provides protection for over 70% of the sun’s rays.
The quality of the mask.
They are designed to be long-lasting and do carry a one-year guarantee for your peace of mind. However, most of our masks do go on to last several seasons. This standard donkey fly mask is easy to care for and use.
Our company was founded from one product, the Net Relief Muzzle Net to provide relief to horses that headshake.
Naturally, the next step was to produce well-fitting fly masks so that horses can enjoy the field even in the height of summer when insects provide a nuisance.
The Field Relief range was designed to be as comfortable as possible as often fly masks are worn for large periods of the day, it also seemed fitting to ensure that the masks have UV protection as parts of the face are particularly susceptible to sunburn, even in darker horses.
