So my mare has a pink nose.
When she gets burned it's mainly between her nostrils, but if it's extreme it'll be all around her nostrils and even on her chin spot. I've been sunscreening her since January and it's not all that bad. The thing is, no one can really do it for me when I go away, so I'm thinking a nose covering/fly mask would work. The one's that only cover the nose are perfect, but won't work for me because we don't turn out with halters on.
Would this work even though it doesn't cover her nose completely?
I'm worried that it won't because the main part of her nose would be uncovered and that's the part I especially want protected.
I'm thinking this would be better, but does it have to say that it has UV protection?
How did you "teach" your horse to wear a fly mask? And does he/she keep one on for several days of turnout? Is it safe to do that?
I'm going to keep looking at different fly masks. ;)
