Thanks guys.... This has been helpful. I will bathe her soon, and I might try to keep a sheet on her to keep her clean. Does anyone know of any good summer sheets?

Haha clean that doesn't exist. I got to the barn today to find my white girl 75% mud. And by the way sheets only work for the part they cover it looked like lizzy still had a blanket after you took it off lol. But she has just a plain weatherbeeta turnout sheet with no fill. I like her winter Saxon blanket better though depends on horses shape.

That's why you pair the sheet with turnout boots like these ;) : Socks and Wraps | New Equine Wear

The temp/humidity control is definitely a plus. C:

And for a show horse (especially a grey/white one!) you can also find a no-fill full-neck OR a no-fill nylon hood. If you get something that isn't waterproof there's always the option of spraying it with something like Camp Dry to make it more water resistant.

The first day it was over 60* I bathed. If it's over 60, sunny and warm, I bathe. Or basically, if it's warm enough for me to be in short sleeves I can bathe my horse. So, I think 65* and sunny is plenty warm :)

I'm thinking I'm going to bathe my horse tomorrow since it's going to be 68+/- I just hope the possible T-showers hold off!

I think that if the shower room is inside the heated barn, and you use the warm water, your horse will be okay. We usually wait until its warmer, though. You could also just use a sponge and a bucket of water if the horse isnt too dirty.

I'm from Wisconsin and I gave my horse a bath yesterday, in 50 degree weather; 65 is plenty warm.

You guys are so lucky. It's warm enough here in Minnesota but we don't have anywhere to wash that isn't a giant mud pit :( and it's going to be in the 70s this week ahhh so wish it wasn't so darn muddy.

I was thinking of just using a fly sheet to repel most of the dirt as well as bugs. Oh and I am not looking for a super clean horse, just clean saddle area so I can ride often this summer.

Oh fly sheets are a good idea here anyway I will be getting one shortly. Just be thankful you can give a bath already a little jealous of your soon to be clean horse :)
