Horse Gets Sun-Burned Around His Eye

Hi! I have a question. My horse has two blue eye and his white blaze that goes over one of them, I've heard that the white around his eye can get sun burnt. I have used sun screen but I always gets rubbed off! I have also heard of some people who take the horse to a vet and get the white around the eye tattooed. I don't want to do that since its expensive, but does anyone has some suggestions about keeping the sun off of it? Or some pros and cons about the tattooeing.

I have a bald faced horse with two blue eyes.

I do three things.

First, I stall her during the heat of the day.

Second, I use 100 spf sun screen on her, everyday, and twice a day when I can.

Third, A full face mask with UV protection, on in the morning, off in the evening.

I haven't had a burn issues sense I started this. She seems to love to sun screen around her eye, and stands quite still while I apply it.

Consistency is the key. Once they're burned it's a different situation.
