How can I help soothe the burns that are there and help to prevent future burning?

Also he has a sore where it looks like the halter buckle has rubbed him raw on his cheek area. His halter seems to fit him correctly.
What could this be from? And how to I fix and prevent the problem?
(I usually leave his halter on 24/7)
Kennsington has what's called a "Catch Mask". It's a combo fly mask and sort of halter all in one. You can latch the lead rope right to the mask and lead the horse where ever you need to go without having to fuss with trying to halter over or under the fly mask. It comes in a long nose with ears model and I use it on my white faced sunburn prone pinto filly. Her poor little face used to get so SORE and now she hasn't sunburnt all summer. You can even customize them with a little fabric paint to look just like your horse if you want. Here's a link with a picture of the customization: http://www.kensingtonproducts.com/bo...ATCH_MASK.html

I have 3 horses that wear them and as the other fly masks wear out, I'm switching over to these exclusively. LOVE them. And they come with a replacement guarantee too.

Here's the one who prompted me to buy the first mask. She was SOOOO sunburnt and her face hurt so bad that we couldn't halter her. So we kept her inside until her sunburn went away and now she wears her mask if she goes out in the sun. No more problems.

I had your same problems, and have launched a new product that just needed to be on the market. I have 90% UV proof, extremely durable material nose shades, full face shades and eye shades. The nose shade flares away from the horses nose for comfort and ventilation, allowing grazing and drinking, while providing a dome like shade over the ENTIRE muzzle and lip area. Then I have full face shades covering the eyes also with the same great UV protection and quality mesh material. From your picture your guy needs a full face shade, those eyes need protection. You can lead them with the shade on, most importantly they actually cover all of the areas effectively, your sunburning problem will be over, and they are comfortable for the horse. Please check out UV sun protection, horse nose shade, muzzle shield, nag horse ranch, horse sun visor thank you and good luck!
