Washing the Dock?

Can you wash a horse's dock, I'm afraid to do it on my mare, cause I think she might get soap in places, and her get an infection. So Can I do it?

Dock.... as in the reproductive area - ?

If this is what you are talking about, rinse. In summer I try to rinse my (former) mare of down in that area. I know with geldings you are supposed to wash out down there, I guess the same in mares, just make sure you are careful.

** I think, don't quote me

Good Luck =]

I think it is fine so long as you rinse that whole area completely after washing and use a very mild shampoo. Any left over residue could cause irritation but I'm not sure about an infection.

As long as you rinse any and all residue it should be fine. Dogs are bathed all over and are fine as long as they are rinsed.
