grooming when freezing?

My horse is so dirty! Its been below 30, with negative wind chills for weeks, and I want to groom him still. He is all muddy, and I don't know how to groom him without him freezing to death... Is there a way, because just brushing isnt working.

You should still be able to brush him, no matter what the weather is....? My barn is not heated at all, so I put a cooler over the horse, and pull up the area that I am working on, then put it down when I move....normally working in 1/4 sections--Front Right, rear right, rear left, front left.

Do you mean wash his legs, because of the stains on the white? You could always use a warm damp towel with a bit of shampoo in it and scrub it.

LOL. Grooming and brushing mean the same thing to me.

Try the damp towel and see if that works, but it is winter, so it is never easy to keep a horse with white, white. Just part of it!

Yeah, my Duncan is a black and white paint, and will all the dreary rain recently, he's almost brown and black :P Though we don't do any showing or anything, so I just brush off what I can and call it a day

I think you mean bathing not Grooming? I know if it is winter, it's always to cold to bath. If your horse is Really dirty, I would buy a dry bath or bath spray at whatever horse store you go to. I have never used any of those products, but I have seen them in tack shops.
