So for the past couple of days, I've been away at a dressage show, and my parents looked after my pony. Normally Ricky has a flymask on of a day to protect him from bugs and sunburn, but this week I let him have it off just cause the sun was hidden behind the clouds. Now this weekend while I was away, he still had his flymask off and my parents didn't put it on him.
Its pretty bad, so my goal is to just keep it clean and out of the sun. I didn't want to put any sunscreen or healing products on it just because of the proximity to his mouth. If anyone can recommend anything safe, I would greatly appreciate it.
Now my question is, can I leave his flymask on at night? I want to keep some of the bugs off it. I know some people think that horses can't see with them on at night, and I know some say they can. So should I put it on him? I see no harm in doing so?
