    Generally if a horse hasn't been exposed to the virus as a youngster, they will get them at an older age anyway. A bit like chicken pox in people, once they've had them once, they don't tend to get them again.

    Actually, that looks like Photo sensitivity AKA sunburn. Is it only on the pink skin on her nose? Possibly dew poisoning also but Id think that would affect the dark skin also. Whats the weather like where your at? Whats she eating? Some plants cause photo sensitivity. I had a bald faced mare that had to wear a mask even in the winter for it.

    Theres a couple on dark skin I believe. And It's like around 30 farenheight, 0 celcius. I don't think there's actually been any dew yet though, and its mostly just been cold, only rained a couple days, even when the leftover storm from hurricane sandy hit it just rained. Buut, it hasnt even snowed yet once either

    The other issue (photosensitivity) and burns like that CAN be caused by feeding Alsike Clover.

    Cows do well on Alsike (a white tall field clover). Horses not at all and it should be avoided either as pasture or in cured hay. Red Clover (Arlington) is not so much an issue.

    I used to frost seed clover on my cow pastures (that were also cut for hay.. first cutting). I always used Arlington Red Clover because some of that hay could find its way to the horse barn.

    Ah okay. Yeah, up here there's at least two different types of clover, but we've never had issues with it before. This field is mowed down to nothing, and she used to be in a field where the grass was as high as your knees and it was filled with clover but again there was no issues with any of the horses.... We had up to about 7 horses on it

    I second the sunburn especially being on the pink part of her nose where her marking is.
