Mares In Season- what do you do to clean it all up?

My mare is 2 and she gets really nasty when she comes in season. It gets all over her legs, her tail...its gross. I was wondering if you guys had this problem and what you did about it.

PS: I have had mares all my life- never one this nasty. So I have never had to do anything but wash them when its all over with.

I have NEVER had this problem. Nothing happens with my mare. She gets moody but that it all.

I use warm water and a towel and just work it out followed by a nice bath if it's warm enough. The mare I'm working with right now has this problem. Would be interested if someone else has a good tip.

Baby wipes, the unscented variety. Cleans everything up nicely, even if it's freezing outside.

I keep a box in my tack trunk, they're also good for cleaning off non-leather tack if needed, wiping yuck off my hands and whatever else.
