[Product Review] NAF Citronella Wash
I have been using this product for a few months now and it's a perfect way to cool your horse off after exercise and also helps to keep the flies at bay. Having a grey means that when Pea sweats, all the muck embedded in the coat comes to the surface, and so this is a great product that helps wash that off without him needing a full bath.
I just add one capful of this to a bucket of water and apply with a sponge before using a sweat scraper to remove excess water. This is such a quick and easy product to use because you don't need to rinse it off or hose before hand, saving lots of time! It's also great because Pea can sometimes be iffy about a hose going up his neck and as that's where he gets really sweaty, using this product causes less stress! (And it also means, I don't get as drenched!).
I'm not entirely sure how effective it is at keeping flies at bay or how long it lasts. I tend to leave Pea in during the day to keep him off the grass and he does seem to have a few flies on him when I go to turn him out, but he hasn't had any more fly bites so...
Along with the NAF tags (reviewed here), I would recommend this product for others as it's a great way to cool your horse off after a ride and does reduce the amount of flies around - at least for a couple of hours after use!
Thanks for reading,
