Cashel Crusader Fly Mask Review PDF Print E-mail
Written by Katriona Lindstrom

I recently received 3 fly masks to review from Cashel. To begin with, I like the packaging. The zippered bag is a good way to store your fly mask for the off season (though we don't have much of one here in Arizona).  It is sturdier than just a thin cardboard box like other masks come in, or a thin plastic bag.  The closest thing to it would be the packaging a comforter comes in.  The front of the board in the package has all the information you need and it is VERY clear what size you have. 

The back of the board in the bag has a size guide.  This guide is more helpful than some other brands, as it shows how to measure and what size the measurements correlate to.  This is more exact than going by just weight.  I have purchased fly masks in the past, based on weight, but they did not fit any of my horses.

Cashel has put a lot of thought into sizing and while it's not perfect, it's closer than most.

Horsing around is the best thing in your life.

Your bedroom walls are covered with posters of ponies. You’ve drawn dobbins all over your notebooks in school. When you say “dam”, it’s a good thing, and your favorite cuddle-up blanket just happens to have hooves on it.

Nobody could mistake you for anything other than the horsey girl you are. So why not brush up on mucking out, cooling down, and more by reading “For Horse-Crazy Girls Only” by Christina Wilsdon, illustrated by Alecia Underhill?

Whether you have a horse or you don’t, you probably spend a lot of time dreaming about everything equine. That’s the best thing about this book: Christina Wilsdon is horse-crazy, too, and she’s got lots of things to tell you.

National Equine Resource Network (NERN) Launches, Prepares to Assist Struggling Equine Welfare Organizations

Horse rescues & sanctuaries are struggling with high costs, low donations and a never-ending supply of horses. A new organization brings them hope…

Each year, more than 100,000 American horses cross the borders into Canada and Mexico where they are sold for slaughter. Countless thousands are seized by animal control officers in cases of abandonment, abuse or neglect, while an untold number of horses suffer silently in barns and backyards around the country. It seems an unfair fate for the animal that has, throughout history, given so much to mankind. Fields were plowed, battles were won, new frontiers were discovered and nations were built – all on the back of a horse.
