Question Getting mud off legs??

Just wondering what are your favorite techniques for getting mud of your horses legs?? I was thinking of clipping the hair down short so that they wouldn't be as muddy but I didn't want her to get anything from having little hair on her legs??

Thanks, muddy horse owner.

Depends on the weather. Nothing is better than a good hosing :) or a bucket full of warm water and shampoo and a sponge and scrub scrub scrub :) the soapy water and a sponge works wonders :)

If its cold though I generally don't worry about it other than a good brushing. If the need arises ill hose their legs. Even in winter it doesnt get really cold here so a hosing is ok in most instances.

I hose mine off when they are still wet. Before they head to the barn for the night if they have been in the mud. Way simpler than getting the dryed stuff off.

Thanks for the tips :) I can't rinse her legs every night as she is stabled a half hour away but when it gets a little warmer I can soap them down.

Crisco to grease their legs works great after they are cleaned off. It keeps the sin soft and the mud from sticking!

A grooming glove is my tool of choice.

You usually have to wait until mud dries to get it off if it's too cold to hose them down. In the mud season I just let their legs stay muddy until summer comes, when I'll give them all a good wash-down a few times during the summer and early fall.
