The fly mask is a good call. Appies with pink skin around the eyes are prone to vision problems.

If you're looking for a cream product, baby sunscreen, horse -formulated sunscreen, and plain old zinc oxide are good options.

I use sunscreen. It works great!

Horses are scared of two things. Things that move and things that don't

If you want something that will last all day, you can't beat zinc oxide cream.

Do be sure to use the above recommended sunscreens on her nose---that always seems to be the first place to get burned!
