    Re: [RC] Tattooing for sun protection? - sharp penny

     Having owned paint horses with alot of pink-skinned white
    on the face, this is not a problem that would require
    tattooing. We do tattoo around the eye on some blue-eyed
    horses,  but no one I know of has ever tattooed that much
    white on the face. Just to have the eyes outlined is
    several hundred dollars and this dosn't include the cost of
    the shot to put them down while they are being tattooed.
    Sunscreen works very well, as does zinc oxide. I have had
    great success with applying bullfrog sun block (SPF 30 that
    people use) once a day on my sunburn prone horses. It's
    waterproof and dosn't sweat off in the hot humid Texas
    summers. None of these horses has had any skin cancer.
