We buy a new one every 2-3 years for our pink faced paint, who gets sunburn and lives in a very rough herd. We do mend it, but it takes a few years to catastrophically destroy them. They really help with the sunburn.

It seems to hold up decently well, though my horse was never known for destroying fly masks... I initially got the long nose because my horse has a sensitive nose and hates the smell of sunscreen. The nose isn't quite long enough to completely eradicate the need for sunscreen, but it does help a little bit and I can leave off the sunscreen when the sun's not too bad. Definitely a product I endorse.
