Wow, I think I am one of the few with a naturally clean gray horse. Even when it's muddy outside, the most he'll have is a small-ish mud patch on one hip or his belly. In all the years I've known him, he's never been completely covered in mud (short of the one time I got him bogged completely down in a creek bottom while riding).

I wonder if it might be something about my dirt though. I turned him out the other day when he was still wet from a bath. He rolled on both sides and the next day, he looked as clean as he ever was.

Fortunately, my grey 3yo has never expressed an interest in learning to roll. Lol! He's still a dark grey, though. People tell me he's the cleanest one out there. He'll watch all the other horses and just stand there. He waits for them to get up and then prods them to play or run. He'll only lie down in his stall, so he gets poop stains. If I don't wash them off every couple of weeks, he starts to stink BAD, lol. Otherwise he stays soft and mostly clean. I've never complained about that!

She is a FILTHPOT!!! Her pasture has a big pond in it and being the water baby that she is, she rolls in the water/mud every day. I almost need a shovel to get the dirt off her sometimes.

If I remember to take my camera with me I'll get a picture of her grotty filthy self today
