Tips for Chestnuts

I know there is already a tips thread started, but I was thinking maybe one more specific.
For example:
My chestnut is always dusty regardless of how many times I brush or curry him. I found that baby wipes help! They are a bit expensive, but then again I got the cheap kind. It was 1 dollar for 100

I have a chestnut also. Instead of wipes, I use just a damp towel as a dust removing finish.

If you don't want to blacken feet - then Brown shoe polish works....

I have a chesnut as well. The if you do use baby wipes, make sure he is 100% dry before you put him back in his stall, pen, ect. The wetness will attract dust. Escpecially if he gets a chance to roll. Do you own a natrual horse hair finishing brush? They can be a bit expensive ($15.00-20.00 for a nice one) but I've had mine for about 6 years. Using that with a flicking motion should knock out most of the dust. He could also just be in need of a good bath. Make sure you rinse him completely off afterwards, stuck on shampoo will attract dust as well. Same as old sweat. I give my guy frequent (water-only) showers.

Hope this helps.

I've found that rubbing them with a cloth does wonders.
