[RC] Fwd: Horse Sunburn Protection - Tamara Taylor

Whoops, must have sent this to the wrong place the first time. Let's try this 

I have two pink-nosed horses. I use Udder Budder (a white creamy udder balm for 
cattle) on their noses. It is thick, 'heavy duty' cream that stays put, 
moisturizes the nose and keeps the rays out. It is not intended as sunblock but 
it has worked for us. You can buy a small tub for a reasonable price from a 
farm supply store. Just be sure it is Udder Budder (the white cream in a 
white/pink tub) not the greenish udder balm (white and red tub). I have found 
that regular sunscreen (even the waterproof sport types) don't last long 
enough, especially on noses that get dunked in the trough. For peeling noses I 
use Udder Budder or Zincofax diaper cream (also thick enough to stay put).
