Okay--done, thanks! Kitten_Val, you weren't joking about how heavy it gets! Holy cow batman! I used the heavy stream setting on the hose nozzle and a scrub brush that my husband uses for scrubbing dog crates. It came REALLY clean, and when it's dry (in 3 days
) I'll take a stiff brush to the underside. I didn't realize how dirty it was, but it's clean now, and I can say I did something productive today. If she hadn't scrubbed her saddle I'd clean that, and her brushes are at the barn so I can't clean them...All three dogs have had a bath and look at me like they want to kill me every time I get up...they're afraid of what else I'll do to them! If I was cleared to ride by my doctor I would have taken extra lessons this week.
