White socks and dirt...
My mare has the tiniest little white sock on her back left fetlock and usually just hosing the dirt from it keeps it nice and white.
Recently she cut her foot (Not serious, thank God!) right in the middle of her white sock, and as I've been applying anti-septic three times a day dirt has really been clinging to it.
Today the cut was looking really good and I decided it would be fine to bath her. I use baby shampoo when I wash her because it's gentle and never irritates her skin and leaves her very soft and clean, but today I simply couldn't remove the caked on dirt that was surrounding the cut, (the cut itself is very clean as I hose it before I apply the anti-septic).
So my question is; What can I use to remove this caked on mud and dirt? I don't do shows so it isn't really necessary to have her looking sparkling clean and to have her white bits looking blindingly white, but I always feel better when she's clean and well groomed.
Also, can you tell me if it will require her cut to be fully healed before I use it?
