Scabby nose

My Arab gelding has a scabby nose-it's in between his nostrils, but not at the end of his muzzle. He eats out of a feeder & there are no rocks in it & he doesn't pick around a lot on the ground. He does have a long blaze & it's pink & white in the scabby area. Could it be sunburn? If so, now what do I do? How do I get it to clear up? And what do I use to prevent further problems? He does have a shade cover, but does move around in his pen a lot.

Yep, it's more than likely sunburn. You can put desitin baby diaper cream on it.

As far as preventing it -- you can use sunscreen! I'm sure they make horse sunscreens, but I've always just used regular baby sunscreen.

Thanks-I will get something on it today so he can start healing.

Organic Raw Virgin coconut oil is a great topical for creating a barrier orver the affected area and promoting healing. Hemp Seed Oil is a natural sunscreen that doesn't contain the chemicals found in everyday over the counter products. Google hemp oil and coconut oil for horses and you will find a wealth of knowledge of their internal and external benefits. Best of luck!
