The horse I ride gets a sunburn every single year. What we do is when she goes outside we put waterproof sunscreen (SPF 50 I use, my friend has use 100 haha) but when they are inside I put on aloe. Seems to heal pretty fast but you will need to do the sunscreen everyday when it is sunny to make sure it doesn't come back! :)

Try desitin (stuff for babies diaper rash) something about the zinc etc in it will help soothe the sunburn..did some research for a friend at work who has a paint that sunburns easy...he said it look better in just a few days...and now as summer hits he is only on night turnout, but you can use suncreen to prevent it from getting bad again..and I think they make a type of fly mask too which also prevents sunburns.

On my paints with white faces, I use baby sunscreen. I get the spraytop and spray it on a brush or a washcloth and then rub it on the sensitive white spots of the face or any other place they seem to get burned.

My paint's pink nose will get sunburned. Someone gave me some Absorbine horse sunscreen a while ago so I just use that on him but any sunblock will do. He also wears a flymask with UV protection with a nose cover. To help the burn he already has heal, Destin cream or something with aloe vera in it will help him out.

Have you tried Corona Ointment? That's what we use on our paint. We have also noticed sport sun block with 30 spf or more works better than sun-screen. Hope that helps.

I have a filly with a big blaze and she has a very white/pink nose. I'll be buying her a nose-flap fly veil with UV protection, plus using sunscreen/zinc cream on her. My adult horse also has pink on his nose so I bought him a nose-flap fly veil and we have some zinc cream that we can put on his nose if we need to. I'm thinking about getting some in purple for him (his colours are purple, white and silver) and some in blue for my foal (her colours are chocolate, baby blue and cream), because if you have bright coloured zinc cream, you can SEE when it's got rubbed off :)

Drop the halter a hole, the buckles should not touch the bone at all.

And can find generic versions of Desitin, that don't cost very much too.

When my horses get sunburned, I go to Wal-Mart and get a Vitamin E cream that is the lotion isle. It's usually two tubs celophaned together for like $2. It works amazingly, it doesn't really have a smell to it, and absorbs completely in, so there is no greasy residue to assist with further burning. None of the horses seem to mind what little smell it does have. I works great for noses.

My daughter's paint has a bald face and gets his nose sunburned AND ends up with dew burn if he's out at night. We put sunscreen on if he's out in the sun during the day in the arena, and a fly mask with the full face if he's in his pasture. At night, we put a layer of diaper cream (we lucked out and got incontinence cream from a plastic surgeon locally who was sent the wrong lotion for his clients--40 tubes for our barn!) if he's out at night since the moisture in the grass can also cause blisters similar to sunburn. This combo over the last 2 weeks has really helped his chapped nose so he's ready for his next show.
