So not too sure what forum this would fit in but ill put it here..

I know absorbine use to make sunscreen for horse and rider but they discontinued it..not sure why.

But, what is another good sunscreen to keep my geldings pink nose from being burnt? I have one horse sunscreen that is complete garbage and the absorbine stuff seems to work the best. I know human sunscreen works but what's the best for a decent price? It is being applied 2x a day as he's out 24/7.
Thanks :)

I've used the pink one for babies successfully. I think its coppertone? I also make sure to get the waterproof one.

Never had a problem on either of two Horse we used it on.....

Banana Boat, Bullfrog, they all make good sunblocks. It's just a matter of personal preference.

I used plain old zinc oxide on the pink-nosed foster horse I had last summer. It worked great, I put it on in the morning everyday and she didn't get burned all summer.

Like Wallaby, I use Zinc Oxide on my gelding's nose with pretty good success.

Lots of white/pink here. I agree with zinc oxide (diaper rash cream) and just skip messing with sunscreen.

Waterbabies has kept Scotty's pink nose from getting burnt for close to 2 decades now. It works so I don't change anything.
