Cleaning horse's head

May be a dumb post, but... :) How everyone cleans horse's head? I use babies wipes, but they don't remove ALL dirt from my white paint. :( Any experience to share, please?

Wet/ damp sponge works good :)

I never thought about getting that kind of dirt off (black horse). I just use a damp cloth if she's really dusty and a dry one to get out eye boogers, clean her ears and nose.
I'm thinking baby wipes are your best bet.

Thanks, folks!

Vida, you are lucky! :) Kiara is mostly white on her head (except some spots) PLUS she's one of the most dirt-loving horses I met. My sorrel qh is nearly not as bad... Lol!

I found a sponge works well.

You guys are going to think I'm awful now, but before a show Willow's head/face is washed with no more tears kids shampoo. And then is thoroughly rinsed off with a light shower! He loves it. Makes him smell nice too, all strawberry ish!

I envy you MeggyMoo! I wish my horse would let me do that Whenever she sees a hose/wet sponge coming, she lifts her head really high and won't let me touch it *sigh* I don't want to push the issue yet because she's still getting over her headshyness. Anyway, maybe one day....

Oh my gosh! I just realised the smilies are back!!!
YAY lol

Our mostly white Paint mare, Lady, likes it best if you just use your fingers like a brush/curry to loosen the dirt and then use a face brush (and she loves to roll in the mud, too).

Brushes never do it so I use a thick moist cloth. I personally don't like it when water dribbles off the sponge when its squeezed (even when its just a couple drops). I like my clothes. The reasoning behind the cleaning will affect what I use. If its for showing I'll hose them down if its just health and hygiene, a cloth is fine.

Meggymoo, I wish I could do it! But I bet she will be very unhappy. I'll give it all a try next spring (it's too cold to wash now already :( ).
