Also re-apply every time animal is washed or exposed to heavy rain.

USE AS A WIPE ON: Brush animal to remove excess dirt and dust. Moisten but do not wet to the point of dripping a soft cloth and rub over the hair. It is best to apply by rubbing against the hair growth. Give special attention to the legs, shoulders, shanks, neck and facial areas where flies most often are seen. Only a light application is required Avoid using an excessive amount on your horses. Do not wet skin. After application, brush thoroughly to bring out bright sheen on the coat.

Then spray from the neck to the tail, finishing legs last. For best penetration of spray to skin and on heavily coated animals, direct spray against the natural lay of the hair, spraying the ruffled hair directly behind the hand.
