I recently posted a thread about my horse's eye swelling up. Well, I have found out what caused it...it was one of her two fly masks rubbing either dirt from the fly mask into her eye, or just rubbing against her eye and making it itchy.
One is a few months old, but the other is only a few weeks old.
Usually I would just stop putting a fly mask on her but she has a huge white strip down her face that is constantly getting burnt and while sunscreen works, it gets used up very quickly ( that's what I have been using while her eye was getting better, instead of the fly mask)
And recently my friends horse died from cancer because it too had a white face but she didn't protect it. So I don't have the option of leaving it off.. ( also don't worry I don't have it on TOO much, just enough to protect her face)
I was wondering what the best thing to do from her was.:
A. Throw out the oldest one, and buy a bigger size ( so maybe it will stop rubbing)
B. Send the newer one in for a wash with my rug
