Colorful Equine Custom Fly Masks

Last week Colorful Equine kindly sent me one of their fly masks.  It was super fun looking through all of the possible customization options, and it was difficult to decide on just one mask.  With 47 trims, 10 meshes, and 10 "Dazzle Me" patterns to choose from, you have 4700 possibilities to choose from.  Decisions, decisions! 

After a lot of thought and some concern over what I should choose, I finally reached a verdict.  The next day (Friday) I received an email that the fly mask had shipped, and on Monday afternoon it was delivered!  All I can say about that is wow seeing as how that is insanely fast for any item, not to mention a customized item.  On top of that, the owner of the business replied to me via email with lightening speed.  Really, this is just a speedy business.

Once it arrived I wasn't sure what to expect when I opened the package.  Things had been going so great, and I was worried that the mask might not live up to the awesome customer service.  Upon opening it up, I was pleasantly surprised!  The fleece is very soft and I felt myself getting the urge to bury my face into it (yeah, I'm weird like that), it reminded me of a fuzzy onesie that's fresh out of the drier... so soft and warm, oh-so soft and warm.  On top of that, the mesh seems to be of good quality and the stitching seems sturdy.

As far as sizing goes, I would say it fits her just as well as her other fly masks.  My one small complaint is that it gaps out some near the ears.  That being said, if you know in advance that your horse has a unique shape, Colorful Equine will tailor the mask to fit your needs.  Just send them your horse's measurements.

This mask is really just too cute, and it will be her official show and photoshoot fly mask.  Ypke is rather rough on her turnout gear, and I am worried that this lovely thing would get stained if it was an everyday mask (pasture pictures were taken purely for modeling purposes).  Due to this, I can't comment on how durable it is, but it is definitely very solid as far as stitching and quality of the materials.  My main concern is just staining! I would rate this a solid 4.7 out of 5, Ypke approved!

**Disclosure: Colorful Equine Custom Fly Masks sent me a fly mask free of charge for review purposes.  While I did receive this product at no expense, all thoughts expressed in this review are based off of my own experiences.  Despite my experience being positive, I cannot guarantee their products.**

    1. Definitely! I wish I could give you the answer to that, but I'm not sure either seeing as how this particular one is just for special occasions. It really does seem well made and sturdy, but I'm not willing to risk ruining it, haha.
