My horse is stabled at the moment and he gets quite dirty under his belly despite having a fresh & clean bed every night. Theres 2 clumps of encrusted dirt on his underside, one is on the girth area which prevents me from riding with a saddle at the moment. It must have happened over night as I groom his underside everyday, but I can't get it off at all? I've been scrubbing it sevral times today using the body brush, dandy brush & even plastic curry combs to try & shift it. Can you guys recommend any lotions/potions/methods to try and get it off? I can't snip the hair off either as 1) it would irritate when the girth would be on and 2) the dirt is clinging right onto the bottom of the hairs.
All help is greatly apppreciated :)
