I recently had a pair of new horses move in. King my big boy has just recently had little scabs and patches of no hair on his nose. It’s quite dry at the moment, I’m not sure if he just has sensitive skin and the dry grass is causing it but I’m just wondering if there’s anything I can do to help him.

He might be eating grass next to pigweed, nettle, or some other toxic weed and he's having a reaction.

the simple fix, if he hasn't rubbed it raw and the flies are leaving him alone, is to buy a tube of WalMarts brand hemorrhoid ointment and apply it to the blusters /bumps.

You can add WalMart's 40% zinc oxide diaper rash paste to that, if the flies won't leave him alone.

If the weather is hot & humid where your horses are on pasture, the issue should clear up once lower temps/humidity arrive --- provided eating next to toxic weeds is the issue:)

Or, if it is actual sunburn, the same meds ^^^^^ will also work for that:)
