I just bought a horse who has not had the best of care. He was in a very muddy paddock and has mud matted on the sides of his hind legs. What would be the best way to get it out ? Should I just clip his legs? I could just let it shed off but it is so bad I am afraid it is pulling the hair.
Try Showsheen or Pink. You'll probably use a lot of the bottle, just so ya know, but it will clean it up. Where I live I'd leave it for protection from the weather. It really bothers us more than it bothers them, and it will shed out in the Spring. =D
All of the above will work. I like to get a kitchen scrubby - the kind that are like plastic netting in a little ball -- they work to scratch the dried mud off without scratching the legs. They'll also work with water to scrub it off with a little more "bite" than a sponge.
We just brought him home today and started to get some of the mud off.we made some good progress just by using the rubber curry. Might try some soap and water in a couple of days.it is suppose to warm up
