PHOENIX – July 16, 2008 – The introduction last year of Farnam’s SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask for A/B sized miniature horses met with rave reviews from miniature horse owners. Miniature horse owners often say miniature horses are like potato chips . . . you can’t have just one. Many miniature horse owners own a few to upwards of 100 or more of these adorable diminutive equines.
Based on the success of the SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask introduced in 2007, Farnam has expanded its assortment to include two new designs for 2008: a new SuperMask® without ears especially for A sized miniatures and a new A/B size with ears.
The new “A” size SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask without ears is specially designed for miniature horses under 34 inches in height. These “little guys” have smaller heads that need a fly mask specially tailored to ensure a comfortable and snug fit. This new size mask has bright pink fleece-lined ear openings and noseband to keep flies and other annoying insects from sneaking under the edges and is also designed with an adjustable poll and throatlatch to ensure a proper fit.
Farnam’s SuperMask® Miniature Horse Fly Mask with Ears is based on the original size for A/B miniature horses and Shetland ponies introduced in 2007. The soft, sewn-in mesh ears allow the miniature horse’s ears to move, yet protect them from annoying flies and insects. Just as with the original SuperMask® without ears for miniature horses, this new mask has bright purple fleece-lined edges for a snug fit to keep flies and other annoying insects out, and an adjustable poll and throatlatch to ensure a proper fit.
Like all the SuperMask® products, these new masks are constructed of a combination of 1000 and 2000 denier “Rip-Block”™ PVC mesh that is durable for stabled or pastured miniature horses. They feature a “no vision obstruction” design that allows miniature horses to see clearly, while protecting eyes from flying insects, as well as airborne dust, dirt and debris. Using the mask provides protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays and helps speed healing after an eye injury.
Farnam introduced the SuperMask® brand fly mask to the equine marketplace more than two decades ago. Farnam is the market leader in the fly mask category with the SuperMask® brand.
