Spray on sunlotion. Spray it on your hands.. then rub it on their faces. Or pony sunblock

I got the cheep 5$ wal-mart brand, dye free, fragrance free 50 spf. Jack doesn't really like it, but it works really well. I put a glob in my hand & rub his nose & bottom lip. I put it on every other day & no more sunburned nose!

I've used Cachel, Kensington Catch Masks, and finally a textilene long nose from Schneider's. All of them work great except for on the one guy who needs them most. He is a flymask Houdini, gets out of every single mask I put on him. The Schneider's one even has an adjustable throatlatch, which is why I tried it, and he slides that puppy right off, 2 or 3 times a day. They all cost about the same and my actual favorite was the one from Schneiders but with this one horse, it's held up the least. He rips the nose off daily (it's a velcro on long nose) and even though I've sewn it on, it still comes off.

This one, you can adjust it a bunch of different ways and I've come to the conclusion that Skip's ears aren't real sensitive because he hooks his ear right behind his leg and rubs til the mask slips over his ears and POOF, it's in the dirt.

I do keep her in during the day as well.

Just curious, what fly masks have you tried that don't stay on?
All fly masks, I have a horse that will remove his and any other horses' flymask within his reach and toss them over the fence. It's his mission in life!

I was using a Cachel Crusader mask that I borrowed from my instructor/boss/the BO, and now I owe her one. Not only did he get it off, but he ripped the entire thing to shreds. I have no idea how he did it, but it was really pretty impressive. I bought some of the water babies spf 50, and ill pick up some diaper rash cream for him this weekend. Fingers crossed that it works, we have a dressage show this coming Friday. Thanks guys!

Excellent, I just passed this onto a colleague who was doing a little research on that.

I've been using Aveeno 70spf for prevention, we were gone a couple days and no one did this for us during the extreme hot weather so came back to two burnt noses. I used aloe vera gel on the burn, that really helped then back to the sunscreen twice a day. I'm going to try the diaper rash cream idea, it is water proof.

Normal sunscreen doesn't work for my boy, he has to have either white human zinc, filta-bac which is a zinc based sunscreen and antibacterial cream, or the show pony powdered zinc sunscreen. So the common thread is the zinc, because it dries almost to a crust he can't rub it off, though he tries! He is te same, can't keep a fly mask or nose shade on him.

If I can't get zinc on him and he burns, I put aloe on at night to soothe, then zinc during the day.
