Burned nose

Can I do anything to reduce the "pinkeness" of my paint's nose? It's not nearly as bad as last year (because I got long nose cashel), but she still lost her mask couple times (when she rolled in mud), so I think those days she got it burned.

I was thinking about vazeline (spell?), but I'm afraid it'll all come off when she dives in the hay.

put a high SPF sunscreen on her face when it is really sunny out. The sport kind so it stays on longer. Use baby sunscreen it has a higher SPF and it is more sensitive.

What Phantomcolt18 said. If you board ask for her to be turned out at night if they have night turnout. If your horses are at home, turn your horses out into the pasture at night.

Nelson has a pink nose and lips. Poor fellow got a sun burn because the Barn Manager couldn't get his sun tan lotion on him because he doesn't know her and wont let her get near him.

So everytime I go out to see him, I slop his muzzle with a strong sun tan lotion.

He hates it - lol - he purses his lips when I put it on him...ha ha ha ha.

Yea, switch his scheduale around, Blue goes out at around 5 now, and comes up at 8:30 in the morning. It keeps her from sunburning, and she still gets to go out and graze. Be careful though, because a horse can get stocked up during the day
