You can hose them down with plain water to get off all the sweat. It's the shampoo that strips the oils, not the water.

In the summer I often hose mine down when it's really hot. Sweat scrape all the extra water off, and they're happy campers.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Now bathing, that's a different story. That strips the oils so you want to do it as less as possible.
This! My guy is in a pasture and I brush him with minimum curry, body, and soft. I brush him when I bring him in, and again before he goes out. (depends on what kind of work we did)
