Twister has a burn too. I have been using a unscented zinc oxide stuff. Its getting better and its protecting the new skin.

Animal testing

Pretty much all human sunscreens are animal tested so I guess you could just use normal sunscreen? I would probably ask your vet.

My first paint suffered from sunburn! It was so bad that I was applying 60spf ti his nose abd ears and having to turn him out at night and in during the day! DO NOT put anything oil based on him. If he should get a blister and it should open an oil based product will actually "hold" bad bacteria in the wound.

I definitely recommend Zinc Oxide paste (also called Ilhe's Paste) and it can be found at the local pharmacy. Its like diaper rash cream. I've been using it on my mare and it works wonders.

P.S. If she has a white nose, the zinc makes it look extra white! Lol.

Aloe will help sooth the burn.

Oh goodness you guys! Our farrier came out and looked at it and he said it looked like Wild Parsnip. It causes big blistering and irritation. The vet came out and confermed it. She had some on her legs though but only the white legs becuase it affects the white pigment. The pink skin. It's the weirdest thing. We found some Wild Parsnip in our pasture that she had gotten into.

Oh my goodness. I've never even heard of that before! I hope she'll be ok!
