I am hoping it will help! In Portland everyone just had regular fly masks, the flys weren't horrible and heat was never out of control. I was just so worried about his hooves cracking and splitting, I forgot to care for his face especially after being out of town for while. I felt so horrible seeing his nose so cracked and burnt.

it's hard to keep those fly masks on. they can get lost in the pasture. you might put some bright colored tape on it, so you can find it, if the pasture is large.

thats a good idea for the tape. I have some horses, that help the other horses out of their mask

Good news! Triggers nose is looking so much better! The scabs are flaking off and showing healed pink skin and the cracks in his nose are closing up nicely :) I'm so happy! He at first wasn't in love with his mask, but I think he is actually really liking it now since the flies are so bad this year and he quietly puts his head down when I go to put it on him. Also he is letting me touch his face without freaking out, so his pain level has to be down. Feeling good!
