My horse has static cling.

I kind of want to get rid of the cling. Its causing dust to stick to him more than usual. Can I just... wipe him down with a dryer sheet or something? Do you think if I rub a balloon on him, it'll stick?

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

Hot rag him.
Hot water, damp cloth, wipe. Don't soak, its too cold! Just wipe.

A balloon may stick, but don't think he'll be overly impressed xD

I would take a rag to him to get the dust off and then yes, use a dryer sheet!! Get the unscented ones as sometimes they can be allergic to the smelly ones.. I dryer sheet my poor horse when he gets all staticy and I'll leave one under his blanket if his blanket is all staticy too...

Didn't think of the allergen problem. But glad to know somebody has some the dryer sheet idea before
