    I found a fly mask I like but it doesn't have ears. Would it be comfortable for the horse to put a fly veil under the mask?

    Did you try it? I haven't ever used fly masks.
  3. Cashel makes "ear masks" that will fit under a fly mask. Very low profile, just a simple elastic "throatlatch" to secure it.

    I keep several on hand to use as needed.

    Edited: Looks like they no longer make the version I have. Glad I have a bunch already, and they have lasted great thru the years....

    So back to your original question, yes, ear bonnets/veils will fit under the masks. Just look for rubbing and adjust as needed before sores develop. You should see some of the forelocks I have to fit under flymasks!
