**thanks for the advice ricci. I've been trying to boil water and put it in a thermos with me to help with the spot cleanings. I think she'll be sensitive to the water in that area, as when I brush the inside of her thigh she sometimes begins to lean over, like she's ticklish or something. I was looking at her in pasture and while all the parts of her that are white are clean, she looks grey and black. She must always sleep with the same hind leg tucked under her, because she's got a single yellow-green mark on her hock that needs some serious whitening shampoo. The days are getting longer and the weather is letting up, I'm gearing up for it, so tired of the hibernation season!
