The shoo-fly also gives your horse another way to shake off flies when they're bothering him.

Made from black, chestnut and white tail hair, the shoo-fly hangs on the saddle cinch between your horse's legs. The triple-bell mule cut on the tassel makes it unique, and you can choose from a white or black top color to match your horse.
