Fly masks/sheets

We're getting our first horse (eep!) and he's either a cremello or a really, really light grey and he obviously has pink skin so he burns easily.
For one, should I be concerned about Frosty (the horse) burning on his like his hindquarters, back, neck, etc.?
And then second, if I should be concerned, are there fly sheets that have UV protection?
And lastly, what would you guys recommend for fly masks (With UV protection) and fly sheets (with if they make them like that)?
Thanks (:

I have a fly mask from RES Equine products. It is so awesome because you can replace the Velcro whenit wears out. LOVE LOVE IT. www.resboot.com

I am not sure about sun burn on the body as my girl has dark skin but she has white on her face so I have the Cashel long nose fly mask. And here is a picture of her this morning trying it out for the first time.

Our mostly white mare doesn't burn on her body, will get red on her white head, and will burn on the end of her muzzle. As much as they hate it, zinc oxide works best.

Cashel long nose without ears is what I use on my white-face horse (I don't like the one with ears - in my experience they don't hold on well if they roll a lot plus some horses don't like ears).

Thanks guys! We went shopping today and ended up going with the Cashel long nose with ears (: gnats and flies are bad where I am so ear pieces are a necessity.
