the dreaded PINE SAP

So my horse LOVES to rub up on pines, and he's now got nasty hardened, sticky, pine sap all over him. I know vegetable oil will get it off, but then it takes me forever to wash the oil off of him, is there any other quicker or easier way to get all the sap off of him?

ditto on what cakemom said. Though be sure to wash your horse right afterwards... that stuff can be caustic.

Some one told me today to try orange pumice soap when I asked if they knew what would get pine sap out. My little Arabian mare is covered in it

Myth= Free/Cheap horses are expensive.
Indy was $150 we keep her in a pasture with a shed for free and she is brushed and fussed over dailey. Other then deworming and feet trimming she isn't costing us anything.
