I have a colt that is currently two months old, he has a bald face, and today I noticed he is getting a little pink. Is there any kind of sunprotection options out there? What would you recommend?
I recommend this product on every thread I see asking about sun protection. I use My Pony Sunblock, and absolutely love it. It is so easy to apply, much easier than sunblock lotions. It is waterproof and odorless. We have a 6 week old foal right now that has a pink spot right on the tip of his nose. As soon as we noticed it getting a little red, out came the My Pony Sunblock. It's a powder and goes on with a little sponge that's included.
Nose Nag flymask ! 90% UV protection! And they don't "cover" the nostrils so they came breathe better in it better than a Cashel Long nose Fly mask .
We use either a generic 60 SPF sunblock or diaper rash creme (zinc oxide) which is great for burned noses.

I have a bald face horse too. I put her in her in her stall during the heat of the day, apply nutrigena 100spf on her morning and evening and she wears a cashel log nose fly mask during the day.
She's blue eyed and her right eye runs a little bit so a few weeks ago I bought some visine eye lid wipes and I've got to say they seem to have reduced the problem.
I'd love to try some eye drops. Anyone know how to introduce her to the idea?
