Q: Does the sun bleach animal hair?
My hair is ash blonde. By the end of the summer, it's REALLY blonde...my hairdresser asked me where I had such natural looking highlights one time. :-) Does the same thing happen to animals when they are in the sun?

Horses tend to get discolored in the sun light. Most of the time the black fades into a deep chocolate brown. They also can get sunburned on their pink bits. My horse is black and white and his muzzle sometimes gets sunburned. I actually put childrens sunblock on his nose because when he was a baby it burned so badly that it became inflammed and peeled. In some parts it was ulcerated. I was so upset with myself since I can totally empathize with him since I am very fair skinned. We now make the sunblock part of our grooming routine along with the fly spray.
