    Muddy faces?

    Hi I was just wondering what everyone uses to get the mud of their horses face? When I go see Gambit he always has mud caked onto his face and the rest of him. I use a curry comb on the body mud, but is that too harsh for his face? Thanks in advance.

    If it's dried to dirt, I use a jelly scrubber. Love them, so versatile!

    If it's still wet, take a rag with warm water and gently wipe it off.

    I tend to just use a stiffish body brush - not pointy enough to hurt, but dense enough to get under the mud and get it off :)

    I just use a regular curry comb. But my horse really enjoys having her face rubbed. So you might want to use what equinephile said with one of those jelly curry's they are much gentler.

    I just a plain small tooth rubber curry comb. Course my gelding usually falls asleep when I use it on his face. :-D

    Dry wash rag for caked on dirt, its easier to maneuver around the eyes/muzzle. For fresh mud just use warm water and rag.

    For dried on mud, I normally just use my fingers to rub it loose and then a medium body brush to finish dusting it off. Lots of folks are appalled if you use a curry on their face, but the way I see it, if you are gentle about it and your horse doesn't mind, what's the harm?
