    I have a appaloose horse with a pink muzzle. He got a sunburn on his nose. Its not very bad but it irritates him. I was wondering what type of sunscreen would be best for him and what would soothe the sunburn he already has. Thank you!

    I think my horse has Photosensitization. I haven't had a vet look at it yet. What do you guys think? Does anyone have any experience with this? I like to treat conditions with home remedies whenever possible, any ideas?

    As you can see my horses muzzle area is all pink skin, and its very dry and even kind of wrinkly from what id guess is sun damage. I keep an extended nose fly mask on her almost always but that just is not enough defense. /: I guess I'm asking two questions, one being: What can I do to repair...

    I have read a lot of posts recommending Zinc Oxide for nose sunburn on horses. My concern is that this product is marketed for skin protection on babies (diaper Rash). It also has warning labels for ingestion, to call poison control. My question is; is it safe to apply to a horses nose where he...

    My new horse, Texas, has a very pink nose and I am wondering if it will definitely require protective attention (ie. fly veil w/ nose flap, zinc etc.) and if so, what works best? If a horse has a pink nose (in Australia it is Summer - very hot, so I will definitely need to deal with this right...
