what temp is to cold to bathe horse

I went to our ranch store and was talking to a few people and I was telling them about our horse. They all said rain rot and told me to get this Viodine shampoo, I told them I was looking for something I didnt have to get her wet since it was getting colder out and they all looked at me like I was nuts. They said as long as its at the hottest time of the day and in the sun then it was fine to give her a bath. So I bought this shampoo and will try it on our warmest day and take her for a walk when im done. Do you all think she would be ok getting a bath in the mid 50's? I was brushing her yesterday and I saw a spot now on her side where her hair is coming out and its down to the skin so I really want to get this shampoo working on her. It treats fungal and bacterial skin infections.

50 degree weather should be fine for a bath. You can throw a cooler on her after the bath so she doesn't get a chill.

What I really like to use on rain rot is MTG..you dab it on the infected area,and you don't have to give the horse a bath.

50's should be ok as long its not windy, and preferably when its not cloudy. Just towel her off really well and use a cooler if you have one, and if you don't, you can just use a regular stable sheet after you have toweled her off well, and walk her around, but take the sheet off when it gets damp and hang it up to dry.

Mane and Tail makes a topical spray that works very well for rain rot and scratches. I used it all last winter on a thoroughbred mare with a nasty case of rain rot and scratches it works wonders. You just need to spray enough so it reaches the skin.

:) hope this helps
