Ok so I'm new at this...I've only ever owned one horse and it was a chestnut. Now I own a fleabitten grey appendix that has a pink nose. I just bought him a crusader long nose fly mask (with ears) to help protect his face from sunburn. I heard another woman out there that owns a grey horse as well and she said even though her horse has dark skin and no pink, last year his back got REALLY sunburnt and peeled really badly so she was going to get him a sheet this year for turnout. I don't want to sound like an idiot here, but what kind of sheet do you get them for something like that? I looked at one website and they had 'fly' sheets and 'protector' sheets but neither of them said anything about UV protection. Also I was wondering if there are topical products for horses to protect them from the sun, horsey sunscreen? Horsey sunscreen with fly protection?? Any suggestions would be great!
