I *tried* to clean Gem, my mostly grey leopard appaloosa.
This is the before shot.
I used a shedding blade to get off what mud/dirt I could, which wasn't too much.
Then I took a curry comb and did that.
Then I took a medium brush (I can't use a hard brush because he has very sensitive skin)
And this is what he looked like afterwards
Not much better IMO.
It was in the high 30s (F) today but with the wind chill, it made it in the low 30s. There is no heated water, or indoor wash stall. He is also out during the day and in at night and he is not blanketed. (We are not planning on blanketing this year unless a specific horse is cold and needs it)
What would you use/ do differently?
