Clean but dirty horse? :/
Hey, I'm from Australia, so it's cold and getting colder here. And we've recently started rugging up super well (combo rugs and such). But I've found that when I take off my boys combo rug he looks spotless, (not complaining about that!) and when I brush him, no dirty/dust comes off (apart from a little on his legs/face). Same with currying, no dirty! But then I tack him up, ride him, and when I get off there is HEAPS of dust round the edge of the saddle blanket (none under) and his rump is reasonably dusty too. :/
I'm so confused! Why no dust when currying etc, but riding there is dust galore!?
Also how can I clean him if there is no dust while currying? I can't bathe, way too cold.
