After finally getting some rain here in northeast Texas, my black and white APHA gelding, Toby, decided to go for a muddy roll.
I spent about an hour last night currying and brushing him and was able to get rid of about 95% of the caked mud on his hair. Unfortunately, he also had mud caked on his head and face and in his mane. What is the best strategy for getting rid of mud caked on the face, especially in sensitive areas, such as near the eyes? He also had clumps of mud in his mane. I was able to pick out the largest and brush some of the smaller ones, though Toby was really not happy about it. What is the best way to get rid of the mud clumps in mane?
