Something I have found that works well for my Paints, is Desitin. Yep, diaper rash oinment! Even better , and cheaper, is the generic desitin you get at the dollar store. The zinc in it protects from sunburn, while healing any skin issues already present. And it sticks and lasts wayyyyyy longer than any sunscreen I have tried. Last summer was my first summer trying it, and I might never go back to regular sunscreen. I only need to use it for noses/faces, but I have a friend with a Cremello mare who has used it on other parts of her body.

It's a miracle cream! Lol :) Seriously though, after a friend suggested it, I started using it and advised my riding buddy to use it on her paint's nose (who had a serious case of sunburn), and by the end of the weekend her nose was almost healed. It's some good stuff!

I also wanted to add that there is a fly spray that I get, called Gordon's Horse and Pony Spray. It is oil based and contains sunscreens as well. I use it on one of my paints that has a thinner coat. I like the benefit of fly spray and sunscreen in one product. Warning, it is pretty oily.

I love the Desitin idea! I had no idea it could protect against sun? And the fly spray/sunscreen combo is what I was hoping would come up. Great ideas & advise...sooo apreciate!
