Subscribing cause I have similar problem. We use sunscreen on our new baby & I swear its making his nose worse. Little ******* likes to lay in the sun and won't keep his fly mask on. :(

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

I put sunscreen on everyday, and I also use a fly mask. Honestly, it works for my horse. But if I skip a day he'll get sunburn. I bought a kids waterproof/sweatproof sunscreen, if that's true or not, who knows, but it seems to work for my guy.

Good Luck :)

^Ive seen these before naghorseranch....how do the horses seem to tolerate them? I've considered them before, just don't want to spend money on something that my 16month old might not tolerate.

Honestly, I have a fly mask on him when he is out during the day(but lately with it being so hot, they keep them in during the day, and let them out at night), but he really doesnt tolerate it well. If I was to get something I would get the fly mask/nose protector combo....

I used baby sun screen on my horse for years. Worked fine. No reactions.

If you want Zinc Oxide just buy that instead of buying Desitin.


Naghorse, those things look interesting but they would never stay on any horse I have.

By their five almost identical posts, I think maybe, possibly, Nag Horse Ranch sells something for the problem. Just guessing though. Might need a little more encouragement to go to the site....
