    He-he... I do. She perfectly knows what the treat is. Still doesn't help much.

    It's just like trying to clean a boo-boo on a kid... they'll fight and fight thinking that you are going to kill them...but in the end it's what's best. The horse should eventually get used to it.

    I like using polysporin... It's not too expensive and it sticks to my finger so I can get that good swipe in when the horse is standing still.

    What is killing me is the fact it's not like I did it just once or twice, had issues and came to the forum to complain. I have her for 2 years and still whenever it's a nose cut it's a drama every time I put the ointment on. Well... Such is life I guess...

    You know, maybe you are finding the cuts so fast, she's somehow associating your meds with the cut and pain, rather than the cut itself. 'course I still don't have a solution either... When she doesn't have a cut, can you touch her nose?

    In fact I can touch her nose WITH the cut if I have no ointment on my hand. I tried baby oil (with the very little scent) yesterday and she was very objective too. May be she just can smell too well (like a dog).

    So, she's either telekenetic, has uber-sense of smell or sight or you're sending her a message unknowingly before you apply the ointment.

    OK, I tried all human medications I have on weekend: one is neosporin (almost no smell), one is triple antibiotic treatment (I couldn't smell ANYTHING). As long as I tried to put it on nose - she raised her head and run very objective. As long as nothing on finger or you come without medication (I tried to approach the same way as I do with medication: finger off and all to imitate I going to do something to her) - she's fine even to touching the cut on nose. I guess she's just oversensitive to the odor...
