Rated 5 out of 5 by 4Hoofbeats Works great in high grasses
Where I board the pastures are not mowed/rotated as often as I like. Recently, another boarder was complaining about the huge welts their horses received from the bugs in the tall grasses. I suggested Belly Balm as in the past my mare was in a retirement farm and they used is all the time as the horses were out in the elements and run in shed. It is oily but then bathing removes it easily. It is a little expensive but goes a long way and worth it.

Just tried this for the first time last year. My poor pinto gelding gets eaten alive on his belly button and private parts. I have tried many different goops and roll ons and this is the best!

Rated 4 out of 5 by nonommy It works!!!
It actually works! My poor gelding was getting eaten alive. His belly, his sheath, the inside of his hind legs, and every and whorl on his body were covered in nasty little bites, no matter how much fly spray I used. I had some other bug gel that works well on my older gelding, but wasn't much help to my new guy.
The jar I have is a little pasty and chunky, but I'm guessing that's because I'm applying it in the AM when it's 45 degrees out. Once it warms up against the horses body, it does become more salve-like.
It doesn't rinse off easily off your horse or your hands, so be prepared with lots of soap and water!
