There have been a lot of good answers so far, but I thought I would share what I do with my horses who tend to get sun-burnt noses.

Use desitin for sunburns. It's amazing stuff. You put it on and it stays on, even if it rains a little. I once put it on a burn from getting dragged by a young filly and it made it feel so much better.

They do make vaseline lotion with aloe in it. Also my aunt has a horse with a very white face and pink muzzle and she uses baby sun screen on his face daily.

The zinc oxide works great! I've tried other sunscreens but they don't cut it. As for the halter, I agree with everyone else, it's dangerous for your horse to wear a halter 24/7. I did not know that until I experienced it myself. If you have problems catching your horse (as I did) get them into a routine. I put the halter on mine when it was time to eat and put him in his stall, then took it off and let him eat then back on again to turn him out (without his halter on).

We always used Water-babies Sunscreen on our horses to prevent sunburns. To treat it, get some aloe, it's natural and very soothing.

I swear by corona ointment for preventing and treating sunburn. The lanolin is soothing, moisturizing and it completely blocks out the sun and does not rub off. For prevention only, I will use a regular sunscreen.
