Question Keeping your horse clean in the Cold!!

So does anyone have any great ideas on how to get/keep my man clean when it is so cold outside? He is constantly rolling in dirt and dust so he is so dusty and dirty right now. For shows in the winter we put some pepi in a rag and wipe him down so he shines and it removes excess dirt and hair (he's so easy to clean for shows being a bay)but that stuff is pricey so for just everyday grooming it's not used. He isn't body clipped so he's fuzzy (and he wheres a blanket) so without a bath what's the best way or is there a way to keep him clean.

I have a mostly white mare who stays mostly white (on 24-7 pasture & no blanketing) through plain regular grooming. However, I will admit that a pumice stone works wonders at lifting dirt and debris combine that with a stiff rubber curry and there's not much you can't scrub off a coat with some elbow grease of course.

Good luck!

My mare is blanketed so I do nothing except pick her feet and clean her backside from blanket straps. I use cowboy magic green spot remover. Only need a wet paper towel. Otherwise I just leave her be until its time to shed.

I just break up the mud clumps with a curry when they've dried and brush out as much of the extra dust as I can. My critters stay pretty decent looking that way, though the mustangs are especially fluffy in their winter jammies... so they always look more endearingly cute during the winter rather than sleek and muscled.
