Well if she has the TEXAS type black mud, then I understand how difficult it will be to get off of her even if you wet it. Also if she is underweight and it is chilly in your area or even a tad bit windy you might not want to get her too wet unless you have a barn, blankets, or heater for her to warm up. I would suggest some crisco grease, baby oil, or even child detangler with some water of coarse. Just take a nice sturdy comb and take your time. If you use the grease, don't use too too much as it can smother the skin, just only dab it on the small mud clots and then comb out then use warm water to help take some of the grease out. I am sure it will take lots and lots of work but just be patient with it and don't let it frustrate you. Good luck and thank you for rescuing her. :)
