I have a white varnish roan appaloosa with extremely sensitive pink skin. Given the current state of his skin, Iím highly concerned about him getting skin cancer and would like to take as many precautions as possible, but unfortunately am unable to make it out to my barn everyday to meet all his needs, and I must rely on my barn owner for her assistance.
The major area of concern I have is the pink around his eyes, nose, and his sheath. Speaking in particular regards to his err... manparts, whenever he is relaxing, his sheath is exposed to the sun. Because he is white and has pink skin, Iím extremely concerned with sunburn and skin cancer.
My barn owner has agreed to put sunscreen on his nose, but refuses to address his sheath. Given that my barn is over 20 minutes away from my house, how can she expect us to go out there and do it every day? Isnít that what we pay her to do is take care of my horse? If anyone has any suggestions regarding how to approach my barn owner on the subject and what to do about his genitalia, please let me know!
