Sunburn question

Last year I was having trouble with my 2 year old filly TWH getting sunburnt on the side of her face (one side is black other side is white) the white side of her face tends to be tender to the sun. What could I do to prevent the sunburns as spring is here and the sun is back out in full force here and I don't want her to be hurting or anything.

Sunscreen or a mask that attaches to the bridle would be my recommendations. We use sunscreen on our white faced horses and it works great!

Thanks for the tip, she gets burnt mostly around her mouth and tip of her nose on the white side and a little under her eye.

The sunscreen should be perfect for that. Your horse may not like the scent of it at first but they eventually get the idea that it isn't going to kill them or eat them.
