To bathe their udders I use sponges that I think are actually intended to wash a car; you see them in both household and autocleaning supply areas . It has a super soft material w dangley "fingers" attached to it around a sponge core. I use castile soap for udders (sheaths, too) b/c it leaves no residue. The udder is a sensitive area w delicate skin. IMO, it is imporant to be "considerate" and gentle and to first communicate what your are going to do and ask for "permission". If you are polite about it, there should be no problem. :) Not so for geldings...they don't always appreciate "polite"..the bums.
There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.
