Winter Dirt Tricks

Here in the Northeast is has already snowed once and I am sure that more will be here soon. I cannot bath my horse anymore since we do not have hot water in the barn. I was wondering what some good tricks are to get that extra dirt off of my boy that just wont come off with brushing. My boy loves dirt and should have been born a pig. No matter how much I brush him he is still dirty. Any tips or tricks would be great!

A damp cloth works great. Just rub it all over the really dirty spots. It's kinda like a mini bath where the horse won't get really wet so they don't get cold. Works wonders in my mostly white paint!

Good idea. Once you have him clean maybe apply something like coat conditioner or something similar silicone based and that way I should make it easier to just brush him off next time :)

I thought I also read on here someone said Apple Cider vinegar works too with a cloth. I wanted to see if anyone has tried this before?

Have you tried a rubber curry, the one with the tiny fingers. You'll get a good workout but it does a good job.

I would recommend a warm (not hot) damp cloth and some towels prefferably two, a helper and a bucket of warm water.

I would recommend that you get the cloth(s) wet and wash him gently with the cloth(s) and then when done help him dry off by gently waving a towel(s) on him to soak up the water.

Good luck with your horse cleaning.

Spray a body brush (soft brush) with some coat shiner, I use Vetroline Shine, and then brush over dusty spots. Works great!
