I've managed to get my first sunburn of the season--a bit earlier than usual. Seems no matter how I try, I still manage to get a patch of sunburn on the back of my neck or shoulders. I've been keeping an eye on Trillium's nose and have a tub of zinc oxide cream in my tack box in case her nose starts to get sunburned.

The article Horses and Sunburn or Photosensitivity helps you learn how to identify those weeds, protect your horse from the sun, and treat sunburn if if it does happen.
