^^^ Yes, there are many plants in pastures that can cause irritations around the nose/mouth that look like sunburn.
Lots of pink skin around here, so just a few things to consider...
- Fly masks do help a lot, but watch for irritation/sores under the headbands if you leave them on all day and your horse sweats a lot.
- Avoid dark color masks/sheets if you have horse flies. They are are sight predators and are attracted to dark colors.
- If you want something that really stays on and lasts, skip the sunscreen and go right to the zinc oxide (diaper rash cream).
