Shampoo

Can you use human shampoo on your horse? I use suave if that matters.

Yes, be sure it's ph balanced between 4.5-5.5. Also a moisturizing shampoo is a nice touch for our equine friends.

I use baby shampoo sometimes, the Walmart brand. Its nice for washing faces since it doesnt sting eyes. :)

Most shampoos are now ph balanced to 4.5-5.5, but to be sure, if not stated on the bottle, is to get a strip of litmus paper and dip it in. There will be a color change and match that up to the chart on the litmus paper package.

yep most of them are fine - to check the PH you can get a litmus test from your pharmacy - ALthough if i remember correctly your pharmacys are quite different to ours so maybe not....

As kids I was always stealing the shampoo and condition for my ponies.... and the sunlight sop from the laundry.... never had an issue - but had hardy little 'bush' ponies...

I use a general everyday cheap horse shampoo on my horse (Find it cheaper than human stuff) for general washes and have a lovely henna one for comps... makes her all shiny and pretty!

I find the best shampoo for horses is the "quic" brand. Quicsilver, quicolor, etc.. And they are cheaper than people 'poos too!
