dry nose...

So... I was wondering what to do about Aesha's dry nose....I have seen a sunburn on a horse but this just looks extremely dry...with crusties all over... I was wondering what would be safe to put on it.. I was looking at using unscented, hypoallergenic baby lotion....but I wasn't sure about when she goes for a drink of getting it in her water...any ideas or suggestions?

Is it only crusting on white areas or all over? Not sure what to do in the meantime but you should find the underlying cause so it doesn't get worse.

Her nose is a dark gray and its crusty all over...The person we got her from said there was a pond on his land that the horses could get to,although neither Clare nor I saw one, but when we got Aesha home she drank 2 tubs of water like she wouldn't see it again. It doesnt seem to bother her, but it bothers the heck out of me.

Sometimes horses get a condition that makes them more sensitive to sun but it usually only affects their white areas. Dark grey shouldn't be too affected. Could it be ringworm? I like aloe as a general purpose skin soother and it's pretty innocuous. If it starts to bother her have the vet out to check.
