May’s Charming Challenge: “Skin Cancer Awareness Month”

May 1, 2022

May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month, so we want you to share how you protect yourself and your Haflingers from the sun!
Working with horses keeps us outside all the time! And while long sunny days feel great after winter, we have to protect ourselves! Do you slather the sunscreen or wear UV clothes? Maybe your helmet sports a sun brim in the afternoon?

And while our Haflingers keep their skin covered, their eyes are definitely susceptible to sun damage! Do you utilize night turnout during the summer, or use protective fly masks?

(If you haven’t watch our interview with Dr. Bellone, check it out now for more info. We also offer members a discount on SCC testing, so take advantage of that and share your results on the SCC Database!

Share your tips and SCC experiences to earn your Fun in the Sun charm!
