Nope, of it's above 60 and not close to dark I don't see a reason why it would hurt anything.

Horses stand out in rain when its much colder than 60 a nice scrub down isn't going to hurt anything.

You should be fine but if you don't have warm water then I might wait for a warmer day. It won't hurt to wash them now, but I just like to have it really warm outside when the water is still cold.

LOL, up where you're at, isn't 70 considered a heat wave? I'd go ahead and give 'em a nice scrub, they'll probably appreciate losing some of the extra hair and dirt they've collected over the winter.

Hi all! There is an article in Natural Horse Magazine about bathing a horse here. You might like that.
I don't bathe my horse until I would feel comfortable bathing outside myself.
