I've checked with everyone who was there and he did say dandelion burn, so I'm not going mad! Thank you- it actually looks much better today. Sudocreme rocks!

Buttercup burn.... I think is what you mean :-)

Sudocrem cures all ills

That could explain it- silly man!

Thank you all. I put sudocreme on it yesterday because that's what I put on everything- I'll carry on.

Any cream will work. Vaseline, zinc and castor oil, sudocreme, germoline...

Do you mean buttercup burns ?
Especially common with a late and sudden spring

Antiseptic cream and keep clean and they will heal

I thought it was also called 'buttercup burn'!

Is it an orangey crusty scab? Mine get these on their pink noses and heels all the time. Sudocreme is excellent. We call this 'gribbley beak'! grin

He said it was caused by very mixed rich grazing happening very quickly- like this delayed then sudden spring. But I've never heard of it, my local horsy experts haven't heard of it.....I think I'll just suggest dd bungs some sudocreme on it and see what happens. Hooks for practically everything else!

I thought dandelions were healthy 'herbage', I've never heard of them burning hmm.

The dentist found a sore on young horse's lip yesterday, he said it was a "dandelion burn" and to put bonjela on it.

I haven't heard of this and neither has google. I'm a bit reluctant to put bonjela on a horse- apart from anything else- won't it sting like crazy? [scared emoticon].

Any ideas, anyone?
