SHAKE WELL BEFORE USING: Before applying WIPE® Original Formula Fly Protectant to your horse, brush him down thoroughly to remove loose dust and dirt. Moisten, but do not soak, a folded piece of Turkish toweling (approximately 12” x 15”) or an applicator mitt with WIPE® Original Formula Fly Protectant. Rub briskly against the growth direction of the hair. Give special attention to the shanks, legs, shoulders, neck and facial areas of the horse where flies tend to cause the greatest problems. Add more WIPE® Original Formula Fly Protectant to the applicator as needed, applying approximately one to two ounces for the total application on a daily basis (the variance will depend on the size of the horse).
