It will be 65 here tomorrow and I am going to bathe horse tails. If there is any breeze at all, bathing a horse outside in the spring is risky. I say that because the ground it still cold and although the sun feels warm, it can be chilly. That being said, I'd bathe a horse in a heated barn with hot water in a second. You are SO lucky. I have a pure white horse and he is a mud ball right now!!!

Haha it will be in in the low 70's tomorrow! I was planning on bathing today, but tomorrow will be perfect!

Question: Will the fly sheet I have listed below keep my horse cleaner? (Not looking for sparkly, but groom-able clean.) Would it also hold up to 24/7 turnout? My horse is not too rough with her blankets, but I wasn't sure what this fly sheet could hold up to.

If its edible - Its Gone.

I am interested in that sheet too. I was looking at it the other day and it's more than half off of other sheets kinda wondering how it holds up. Hope someone can respond to that question.
