I will ask a question right back, why would it be?

Baby shampoo is very mild so there is no problem using it on your horse. Lots of people use human shampoos for bathing their horse.

Great
I wasn't sure if it could do any harm, so I thought it's better I ask before trying.
They are cheaper and they smell very good to me :)

It's RAINING!

Cheaper is why so many people use human shampoo.

Baby shampoo does smell good!

Honestly, I've always used Suave shampoos. Cheap, and I can get the apple smell, which I find ironic on a horse. None of my horses have had an allergic reaction to it (though my dog did, so I know to keep a close eye when using people shampoo on animals).

I have always used Johnsons Baby Shampoo, smells nice and is mild. Even I can use it and I'm allergic to shampoo or something.

We used to use baby shampoo on the racehorses. It was on those afternoons that the boss would wander in and find every single one of us in a horse's stall, with our noses pressed against their necks and inhaling for all we were worth. He used to joke about our "drug habit".
