Fridays Fences ~ # 37

  Came across this horse farm during one of our Sunday drives. Wondering what the reason is for the
  mask over the eyes!  Is it conditioning them for something???  Help me out friends!
        Post a picture of a fence or of something through a fence and sign up below....thanks for playing along today and hope to see you back next week!!!

it's a fly mask. the flies like to pick at a horse's eyes, so this is like netting that they can see thru but deters a lot of the beasts.

Tina´s PicStory said...

very beautiful! :)

Elaine said...

Beautiful horses - I was so taken with them I forgot to look at the fence!

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

I'm glad TexWisGirl knew the answer to your question because I didn't. Great looking horses.

Pamela Gordon said...

I've seen these on horses before but had no idea what they were for. Thanks TexWis Girl. :)

Carletta said...

I'm glad Theresa knew. :)
They are beautiful masked horses behind that fence.

Maple Lane said...

Beautiful photos and I'm glad to learn about the fly mask.

Bev said...

Yes would we doubt that Theresa would know what the mask was??

Sall's Country Life said...

Nasty Flys!! I've seen horses around here with masks on their faces and wearing light cotton blankets to protect them from biting pests. Love the picture on your header, Beautiful!

A beautiful country scene!

Faye said...

Needed one of those masks yesterday when mowing. :-) These guys look like a few flies won't stop them from some serious grazing though!

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

It is to help stop the flies annoying the horse, our daughter used to use a fringe across on her horse, which was somewhat more attractive. :)

Lois Evensen said...

What gorgeous horses! :)

Becky said...

What a gorgeous horse, and yes the mask keeps away those nasty flies.

Pam :) said...

Nice find, Janis. Those are pretty cool fly shades. Its hard to swat you eyes with your tail.

Nellies said...

I'm glad there is an answer, because I had no idea either. Of course the horse got my attention and I forgot all about the fence, ha ha. Thanks for hosting this meme, as always.

Betty Roan said...

Love the horses and the fence!

don said...

I never would have guessed a fly mask. Fine shot. Horses are always appealing to me.

Linda said...

Any photo with a horse in it is a good one! Glad someone knew about the fly mask...interesting! I had never seen one before!

Rita said...

I new I was to late to the party to answer your question. We see a lot of those eye mask in our part of the country.

Now if we could just get a body suit for the humans to keep the mosquitos away.

Love you captures this week. Horses seem to interest everyone.
