    My horse has this sudden flaky/bloody nose. What is it? My other horse has no issue at all. They are out on full grass, both senior retired horses. They could have access to any animals. There arent any plants in the pasture that could be dangerous. She always has sunburn issues, but never this bad. She was fine 1 day ago. I rinsed it with water. Should I put ointment on it or leave it?? Her vital signs are all regular, so no issue there.

    Might want to look into Desitin or Zinc Oxide for sun blockage, not as in SPF but just plain coverage. The stuff is thick and stays on well. Also very soothing to a burn or dry skin. Vitamin E oil, straight from a capsule, or aloe would also comfort. The more we get burned (if indeed that is the issue for your girl), the easier it is to get burned and deeper each time, if that makes any sense…. it’s early, still waiting on my cup o’ joe : )

    Sure there's right and wrong but mostly there's just a whole lotta different.
