    Hey Gang,
    So Bonnie has been doing a lot of head shaking at bugs, I was just wondering, do you guys recommend a spray for the summer time? I see alot at TSC for horses but I dont really see any for Go-tees?

    I spray my goats with the bronco horse fly spray. I got it at TSC. I am not sure what kind of bugs you are dealing with but it works well for flys.

    I make homemade, thyme, lavender, tea tree, rosemary, geranium, lemongrass. Just with water. About 10 drops of each oil per 1/2 cup water. Works GREAT!!

    Yes, just don't get it in their eyes.
    I spray down barns and others area's with it as well.
