Dried mud

Ok so my mare just loves the mud. You can groom her and make her look fantastic and then off she goes to roll in the nearest mud pile. Typical horse! Lol. But she has sorta sensitive skin. So whats your easiest method or groom equipment to get out dried mud. Any suggestions will help. The mud on her back is easier to get off then her face or under her belly. :p

The belly stuff is harder to get off because it's not usually all mud. Some manure and urine is probably mixed in. The protein will attach to the hairs and hang on.

Use some cowboy magic or showsheen on her belly after you groom her. Also, the more you groom, the more oil her coat will have and naturally help deflect the 'gunk'.

A good rubber curry comb will do the trick then a soft brush to flick out the dust. Or a Soft dog groomer works too

A good horse can never be a bad colour...

if there's a lot of dried mud, I'll first go over it with a shedding blade, then I'll curry.

If there's not a lot, curry and hard brush works well.

On the face, I use a medium or soft brush

Thanks every one... yeah originally I was using a rubber curry comb but this mare seems to be able to find a way to pack that mud in. So I used a main and tail comb to go lightly over the mud and it seems to come straight out... then I would go over with a dandy brush :o) It did the trick but then once again she went a rolled.... im sure sometimes she just does it coz she thinks its funny

Use a rubber curry comb, and a plastic curry comb.

Also, hand picking most of the mud off is easier.

Around the feet, if it's not budging, soak the feet in a bucket and scrub gently with a brush and hand pick off. Then make sure you dry them well once your done.
