Any who when she arrived she was pretty sweaty from the trip, and dirty from being at her previous home and she STANK!!!! I know people say horses stink but boy oh boy I have never noticed it this bad before. We have the smell under control, her tail only took me 2 hours to brush out and her mane finaly lays to one side and is nice and tangle free.
For the most part her body is easy to brush, finaly have her legs clean. She needs some feet work done but my farrier and I are going to work on that. As for the part I need help with... right where the girth goes and between her front legs she has what I can only assume to be matted poop and pee in her hair. As best I can describe it, its like some kind of armor XD solid and it WILL NOT come off. Iv tried to pull it a bit to see if it has any give and nothing, wont wash off with a wet towel, can't brush it off and theres no way I can cut it with scissors because its way to close to the skin. She also has it on her back legs just below her bum, like she's been laying in it. Any sudgestions as to how I can get it off?? It seems like it would be SO uncomfortable for her and I feel bad for her. I can't bath for at least another month if not more probably (gotta love canada). I was thinking of just clipping the spots that are matted?? But would hate to do it as she would look like she has mange XD any help is appreciated.
