So we have a pretty open air barn which is great in the summer time and it’s fabulous that the horses can watch the sun go down from their stalls but dang it, it’s HOT sometimes in the afternoons in Eastern North Carolina! We recently put up the awesome Horse Fly Nets (check em out online at which are geared towards eliminating flies but they also do a great job of blocking the heat of the sun while still being able to have a great view. It was easy to hang and the horses took an extra look at it ONCE then were over it and now we brush past them when turning out and nobody cares.


And of course the view is shaded but still a fabulous sunset to watch and enjoy in much cooler barn temps!


Check them out as they are a neat company and the innovator, Karleen, is a HorseGirl as well!
