Macabre, do you mind me asking what brand or where you got that fly face mask? I need one for my horse (currently buying)

At first she kept getting it off, but I bought a breakaway halter and looped the crown piece through a piece of twine tied to the fly mask and all she managed to do now is get her ears out. She doesn't burn on her body, but a fly sheet would fix any body issues.

These are good, but I had a problem with my one for my horse. He HATED having it on, as he didn't like the restricted vision. It became a battle to get it on every day. However, one of my friends recommended this instead, and it has been fantastic:

It just attaches to his head collar and I can leave it on the whole time he's out.

I've never seen those, that's awesome! Though I'm lucky, Jynx couldn't possibly care less about her mask, I think she just gets itchy.

Ooh I like that Minstrel - do you happen to know where I might be able to find one?

I have several sabino Arabians that tend to sunburn (I'm putting this down to their excessive white gene) and I just use kids suntan lotion on them. One loves it, the other I have to fight with, but it works like a charm and is cheap! :)

I got mine here:

But that's UK, not sure where to order from in the US... all the brand info is on there though, sure it could be searched for!

For sunburns on the face or nose area, put on the human lotion sun block. Rub it into their face until you cannot see it anymore. It works well because I used to ride a Palomino Haflinger with a pink nose that burns easily.

My baldie hated having his ears restricted by the stiff material. They didn't burn anyhow so I got him an earless version. Dark masks cut sun glare better than light ones. Just look through both on a bright day yourself to see the difference. My boy needed one in winter to cut snow glare.
