Nose Nag flymask ! 90% UV protection! And they don't "cover" the nostrils so they came breathe better in it better than a Cashel Long nose fly mask .

We use the Cashel full face fly masks and they work WONDERFULLY! They don't cause any restriction in breathing, not sure why one would think they would? They don't collapse down into the nostrils, and even if they did, they are made of mesh. They are also only half the price of the nose nag....

My horses breed designed these, you cannot buy them online or from horse stores because we don't sell through them/online, but you can order and I'd be happy to post one out ..

They've had 4 years testing, absolutely no sunburn, amazing protection, used in paddocks small and large with no issues, horse CAN breath, if wet the material doesn't go up the nose (tested under supervision).



I am in Australia if you're interested.

I use those on extreme days.. for the non extreme days I use a fly mask and I have a specially designed nose (goes down the side of the nose also to protect)

Have to get a photo for you.

My boy has a blady face, pink nose and pink around the eyes so I am very careful with him.

If I go out and about I pop on some sunscreen, I use a product called Filtabac which is waterproof (like running water off a ducks back)!

Dirt ,mud ,and snot gets stuck in the "mesh" and creates an almost solid barrier .The NN goes out away from the nose to prevent that .

Also it only has 75% or 70% of UV protection and the Nose Nag is 90% . I have an almost solid white paint gelding that has very sensitive skin ,so that 15% or 20% difference matters. Yes it maybe twice the price ,but it's cheaper than cancer surgery ....

We have an almost white horse too, and two with totally pink noses and have never had ANY issue with the Cashel, though I could see how the mesh could possibly get clogged. We've never had it happen, but it COULD happen. I'm pretty sure it could happen with your version too. We are talking about horses after all, and if they can get hurt, they will certainly do it!

Cashel Company
That is what I use for both my pink nosed horses. Works great! When I don't have their mask on, I put on baby sunblock or desitin cream. They don't seem to mind it after the initial smelling of the sunblock. You know....it might eat them

They are so easy to hose off and hang to dry. I wash ours about once a week or so depending on how dirty they are. Snot gets on the bottom so they need to be cleaned, but they dry pretty quickly after being hosed off.

I LOVE Cashel Quiet Ride masks, I turn mine out in them and although they're thin and do tend to break down faster than some others, I like that they're very flexible and don't cause rub marks on my mare like some others do.

I don't use the long nose mask because it's TOO long for my petite girl (even the Cob/Arab size she wears), but I just put sunblock on her every night before she goes out the next morning. I just get the spf 50 baby sunblock and it works really well

Here's the mask I use, but I get Small horse/Arab/Cob size:

I have several sabinos that get sunburns. I just use regular suntan lotion and they do fine.
The only also has white between her back legs and she has sunburnt there as well. Might be a place to keep an eye on.

Nice looking boy you have. :)
