Can I buy sunblock for horses?
Can I buy sunblock specifically for a horse or do I use zinc or .what do I use?
There are a number of shampoos, coat conditioners, fly sprays and the like which contain sunscreen in diverse concentrations- and that's generally how most people I know usually acquire sunscreen products for their horses. Zinc oxide creams are good to use after a sunburn, as they help prevent further damage- but they are not generally used as sunscreen by themselves. I hope that help.
I just go to walmart and buy regular baby sunscreen. It's undamaging to use, and works great. It does wash off though, so if you rinse your horse net sure you re-apply it.
I did see a fly mask that have a removable, extended, UV protective piece that comes down over the nose. It really wasn't that much more expensive than a regular fly mask.
i just use people sunscreen
but maybe surrounded by ur local horse store theyll have some.
i have 2 concord with a white horse, yellow fur, sunscreen..
Are you talking more or less to put on their nose? You can use a high SPF human sunblock, but it doesn't last adjectives day. I use Desitin. It is a diaper cream so it's think, and it has closely of Zinc Oxide in it. The thickness of it makes it later longer than sunscreen, but a lot of horses hate the smell of it. If you can get it on your horse though, its the best. Btw, any diaper cream near Zinc Oxide in it will work, but Desitin has the most. http://www.desitin.com/en/?dsp=21&psp=22
Hope I helped!
Edit: It is messy though so I use a disposable rubber glove when applying it. Works similar to a charm, and unlike regular sunscreen, its water proof. It also protects against dew poisoning. Dew poisoning causes scabs to form on the nose and the muzzle to become a little red. It can often be mistaken for sunburn, but Desitin protects form both. You can buy Desitin at pretty much any grocery store, in the child section.

I also buy regular people sunscreen. I look for something that is elevated SPF and waterproof, since you know those noses will be getting dunked in dampen troughs. If you're concerned about sensitive skin, you can buy baby sunblock.
I just use regular sunscreen but if u wanna buy just for your horse step ahead!
try a tack shop they usually sell that kind of stuff.
