I haven't... Do you have a place for the pigs to shelter and get away from the sunlight as well as a place for them to roll around in the mud?
Mud can work as a natural sunblock as well as a cooler for the pigs.

Mine have never gotten burned. They have a 3 sided shelter, a mudhole that I fill with water as needed and shade cloth in one corner that they can go under and get out of the sun.

They actually sell sun screen for pigs. Mine seems to do fine as long as I keep his mud hole filled...

Sink 4 posts and stretch shade cloth over them.
