    Weanling
    I hose off, then I've got this cool little thing you can put the shampoo in and then you hook the hose up and sprays the suds onto the horse...sorta like one of those car washer things, I like it cause it isnt high pressure so it doesnt weird the horse out and it cuts bath time in half because you don't have to make the suds!it does it for you! Then I use a gel curry and scrub then hose off to rise...then I go back and actually hand shampoo and condition the mane and tail...works well for me!

    I will fill up a bucket with water and just a few capfuls of shampoo (Depending on the shampoo) and when the horse is completely wet I will just use a normal brush (I keep one for the specific purpose) to spread the shampoo and use my hands to lather it and make it foamy. I only do one section at a time (i.e. Neck first, rinse. Shoulders, rinse. Back, rinse. Butt, Rinse.) because horse shampoo dries fast and if it dries its hard for it to be rinsed out. Then I'll condition the mne and til, and I their cot is really rough I'll condition the rest of the body too but not that often do I do that.

    I just soak her with the hose then soap her up and scrub with a sponge, then rinse and condition her tail and rinse. A word of caution, I used treseme on my horse and she broke out in hives.

    I've seriously thought about one of these, especially for those 'quick' baths when my girl is super sweaty and I want to get rid of the sweat and dirt.

    I do like 'tradional' baths though, too, as it's a fabulous way to spend time with the horse...and you find all those 'itchy' spots...hahaha.

    I wet a horse throughly, lather her up with a soapy brush. Rinse thoroughly, and then squeegy as much as I can with her rubber sweat scraper then I just let her air dry.

    As a side, I don't use human products on any of my animals; personal preference, after being a dog groomer for 15 years!
