Sun burned Nosies

Yesterday i was helping get the horses up for checks and noticed that Xena has a sunburn on her nose...any ideas on what to put on it...I was thinking i put on my burns...but im not sure about what to put on a horses sunburn??

i know keeping sunscreen on it helps prevent it ...but gotta get her healed up...any ideas?? Ive never had a horse with a white nose before ...all of mine have been dark and never got burns

I would think Aloe would help heal it and alleviate the pain too.

I'm not sure what to use once the sunburn has occured, but we use a nose cover which attaches to the halter to prevent sunburn. It works perfectly for our pink nosed pony.

see the 'equilibrium muzzle protector' for an example.

i think Aloe is a good idea. Also, in case you didnt already know, it works best when cold. Ours started working way better when we started keeping it in the fridge. And even if it doesnt help, it wont do any damage so it's worth a try =]

Out mostly white Paint mare burns easily in the strong sun. Any SPF 45 or 60 sunblock with aloe works great for preventing and healing.
