    I really like the Cowboy Magic stuff and Mane N Tail..BUT, trying to not spend so much I like to use Dove body wash with moisturizer and then Dove conditioner..I like to leave a little conditioner in her mane and tail so I won't rinse it all out..works pretty good and doesn't kill my paycheck..I use my Oyster curry brush for a scrubber..
    -Sigh ... so jealous - we barely made it to 40 today and that is warm for Chicago this time of year.. my 2 year old filly still has dried up diarrhea on her tail since we brought her home at Christmas Just can't wait to get my Cowboy Magic Shampoo out.. first bath probably will not happen till end of April IF we are lucky..

    Satrider, the general rule of thumb is that if you can be outside in a short sleeve shirt and be comfortable, it's okay to bathe your horse with cold water. I know I can wear a tee in the 70s! Haha.
    Like stated, a jelly scrubber is basically a curry comb made of a gel-like material. It is by far my favorite grooming tool.

    We don't have hot water at our horses either, I just use the hose..I think it's fine to bathe them if its in the 70s..like Sunny said, if you're comfortable then it should be fine..I do like the jelly scrubbers although I don't have one..I did but it walked off all by it self and NO ONE has seen it..

    Lol it got up to like 72 today..

    Sigh, the grand high today was 20. Took Gizzy for a walk and it seems a bit less icy than it was. So might go for a ride tomorrow. I heard maybe rain on Saturday, which is both bad and good, good because it melts the snow, bad because when it gets cold again it will be a sheet of complete ice. But rain is a good sign that spring is nearing. Just a few more weeks hopefully. I got my fingers crossed.

    I agree with you, it's -30 up here with windchill but some of those crazy white horses are starting to shed! Crazy horses.

    Aha anyways I just use this stuff by Oster. I have the shampoo and conditioner, I just love bath time cause the Fuzz smells like strawberrys and cream after XD I love that scented stuff lol. I've been using the same bottles for three years now (I only bath him about twice a year) but don't have issues with his skin getting irritated or anything. I don't use detangler, just come conditioner to keep it soft and then I brush it out while it's wet, keeps it from getting to tangled.

    I didn't even know Oster made their own stuff for horses. I knew they did for dogs, but not horses. They go the great brushes though.

    Aww I cannot wait for it to get hotter! It is only 11 Degrees C here today but for the past few days it has been so sunny and nice. The horses are really enjoying the sun... Lol sunbathing but it is still not to warm.
