    Default Sunscreen for dark coat?

    As the sun gets stronger, and the sheets and blankets come off, I was wondering if anyone had any great sunscreen products for dark coats. I have a lovely black bay who I'd like to keep from totally bleaching out if possible. But I don't like using fly or sun sheets since he's a big guy and I just think he'll be too hot. I do eventually go to night turnout, but we're at least a month away from that at this point.

    Recommendations welcome!

    They don't work well enough to spend the money.

    Most effective sunscreen: SPF in-the-barn-during-the-day.

    there is a spray called Suncoat that I used on one of our black horses. worked really well! and smells amazing- like sunflowers. i expected her to bleach out anyway(we are having some pretty gnarly sun this time of year here in Cali), but she is staying black!
