Question Warts on her nose

My daughters 12 yr. Old mare has what looks like warts on her nose. Does anyone know of a good remedy for them? Just figured I would check here before I have listen to my wife complain about a vet bill.

Does she have a white face? Is it hot and sunny where you are? Sometimes if my gelding gets sunburned, it looks like warts on his nose but is actually blisters....zinc on the nose and a full mask will help.

Warts are caused by a virus and most often are found on the muzzle, tummy on inside the ear - a Vet may not even want to remove them unless they interfere with eating - they sometimes just go away on their own in about 3 months from when you first noticed them. Are there very many on her nose? A horse will become immune to the virus after an infection and most probably will not be re-infected. I would check with your Vet to be on the safe side. You don't want to treat for warts if it might be something else. Best of luck....

The yearlings and 2yr olds at the farm get them - and they clear up all on their own. I understand that they are viral, and nothing to worry about.
Call a vet maybe to be sure if you are concerned!

Warts are common on young horses, but not so much on older ones. If it were me, I'd have a vet come out and make sure that they are in fact warts. If she's a grey, it could be something else.

Thank you all for responding so quickly! Horse Poor she is actually a grey that is becoming "flea bitten" from what some others have told me. I will give my vet a call just to be safe. Thanks again everyone, it is nice to know that so many people care and are willing to share.
