My boyfriend and I have tried numerous times, and different methods to get mud off our horses' legs and no success. Since we board, we can't go back late at night to brush the dried mud off. Even if we did do that, the next day it would be the same thing. Thankfully tho, the temperatures have been cold (although a few days ago it went up to 60 in NJ
) So there hasn't been too much mud.
If you board, you might just bring a few milk jugs of hot water and a sponge with you from home.
I'm definitely going to gather up some milk jugs, or buckets with lids and fill them up with warm water. I'm sure if they weren't muddy, they'd like the warm water to drink, rather than drinking ice cold water
