Sun Bleaching

My mare sun bleaches a lot in the summer. I've tried different sunscreens without luck. Any advice out there?

She's black and white her black turns to reddish brown. Sheets don't work I can't seem to find one that fits her good and haven't had any luck with sunscreen.

You can try black as knight, or paprika. A sun sheet might help. I'd put her in during the day and out at night.

Rug her. That's all you can do to stop the sun getting at her. It doesn't matter how many supplements you give, the sun is still going to dry out the top hairs of her coat unless they are covered.

Thanks everyone I will try your advice. Hopefully I can keep her black and white, not black brown and white this summer

Only way I found was in during the day-out at night.

That's what Martha Stewart does with her Freisians, and that's a good thing!
