My mare is rubbing her face...

Anyone have any suggestion on how to fix it or prevent her from doing it?

just out of curiosity... has your mare scraped the skin off of her muzzle or is there a color pigment change?

Those are all scrapes, she usually has a black muzzle.


Edited for spelling.

Chap Stick?
I wonder what it causing her to do that I was joking about the chap stick but kinda wonder if some lip balm with moisturizer in it would help. Maybe even carmex Just guessing here, does she need her teeth floated?

Hmmm...why is she doing that? Could something be bothering her, like her teeth or something?

Her teeth were done this year so I don't think it's that. We just started using a moisturizer on her and hopefully that will solve the problem, but lip balm might stay on better.

I just noticed today that my 2 yr old gelding is doing the same thing! He rubbed all the small hairs off around one side of his muzzle.

Hmm, maybe he's just bored? They can have weird habits sometimes. ;)

I know what it is!!! ALL and I do repeat ALL of my horses do this!! Here in Texas we have god awful flies and mosquitoes!! They LOVE the muzzle area because they don't have to go through hair!! I keep a vet aproved insect repellant and sunscreen on them. I'll have to go to the barn and get the name. I'll post later. This stuff is AMAZING!

Thanks you so much.

Do you think it will grow back black? Or will she be stuck with the ugly blotches forever?
