You may not believe this but it has been very hot and sunny recently in Shetland. I would almost go as far as to say that we have had a lovely spring (the second sunniest June in the UK) and summer is pretty good too.
The downside, though, is that pink noseys can become very sunburned.
I took my industrial pot of Sudocrem to Sandness to do something about it.
First up was Tiddles.
Poor little Tids. His nose had suffered badly and so I slathered on the white healing goo.
Next up was Hjalti. Like his mother, he has a very sensitive pink nosey.
Sharing is Hjalti’s middle name! Once a nice clean navy coat now carefully covered in Sudocrem.
(Hjalti has rather a thing for Lyra)
While I was busy, so were others. They were destroying my coat by determinedly trying to drag it through sheep fencing.
I looked around and then remembered Storm. In previous summers, he has suffered horribly from sunburn.
Perhaps not as bad as the others, though, this year, his nosey was still damaged.
It was interesting to see that absolutely no one put up a fuss. They all took their slathering like men and let me put a good layer on.
“Sudocrem Antiseptic Healing Cream has a water-repellent base which forms a protective barrier, therefore helping to stop any irritants coming into contact with the skin. In addition, the emollient effect of Sudocrem can help to soothe sore inflamed skin whilst leaving the skin feeling soft.” (Boots website)
I think the little pink noseys all felt much better, less crunchy and more soothed.
Foula was looking special on the way home too.
A lovely day spent with lovely friends – both human and equine.
