I tried using the wet sponge and the soaping and rinsing with soaked sponge...he really wasnt happy but he handled it like a trooper as he has everything i have done with him...on the trails Ive accidentally put him in some DEEP mud but he is always still willing to go through anything for me. I LOVE MY RENO

wow. its funny to read this because ive never thought of NOT washing a horses face when they get a bath.

we wash our horses faces with the hose just like we do their bodies every day after they go out and work. and when they race we do it with a sponge and bucket of water. one soapy, one rinse water. do their heads just like their bodies. no "damp" sponges or watching this or that, just slop it on like the rest of the body. the only thing we avoid is the ears.

I put a little bit of huggies (fabric softner) in warm water get the water all bubbley and put either my sponge or cloth in it soak it up and then just wash her face with that. To get it off I just go over her face again with plain old warm water.

All I pay my psychiatrist is the cost of feed and hay, and he'll listen to me any day. ~Author Unknown
