Zinc Oxide

Jubilee has sunburn on her nose and I've been putting zinc oxide on it because that's what my trainer suggested. I've been putting quite a bit and even farther up her blaze because she has good-sized rubs from the halter. I'm going to need to get a special padding for it. But yeah, someone told me zinc attracts the sun even more. What do you guys think?

Thanks.

8) that's what lifeguards and other sun bodies use. Besides...lol...it says on the bottle that it will protect so....I wouldn't think it would attract the sun rays. Then again I'm not a chemical engineer or anything like that.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

It is the white stuff that you put on your nose to keep it from burning. Its also in Desitin diaper rash ointment so I'd say its a good thing to use.

I say it's fine. Yeah, usually is the white stuff that works!

I would say that that would work...We don't have any horses that get sunburned

Update:

I checked Jubilee's nose today for sunburn and halter rubs and the zinc is working really well! The rubs are healing up nicely and the sunburn is almost gone. I slathered her again in it today!
