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.
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.
