Moonshine is sunburned

I realize it’s hard to tell from this picture but my poor horse Moonshine came to the barn today with a touch of sunburn on her pink nose. She’s almost entirely black (as is Valentine) but has this pink area on her nose with a little white hair over it. And today it was pink. Our pasture area is probably 40% wooded and there is an old barn that’s open on two sides. But apparently they’re spending enough time in the sun to warrant sunscreen. And that brings me to these questions:

  1. Should I apply sunscreen to sensitive pink areas on my horse?
  2. If so, what kind? I haven’t seen any horse sunscreens. What do you guys use?

Here’s the picture:
