Poop Tail in Winter :(
Any advice on cleaning my horse's poopy tail? Its too cold to wash it this time of year!
He has a not-so-great colon so he usually has a little bit of loose poops but he recently got very bad diarhhea and that made his tail even worse than usual!
We usually use baby oil to brush out tangles and the such

since my horse has a white tail I have to wash it every now and then otherwise it'll stain the tips of her beautiful snow white tail yellow and rust colors. When I do I try to do it on a relatively "warm" (above freezing) day in the afternoon; then when I wash it I use a bucket of water, shampoo, and towel dry. I've not had issues with freezing. Otherwise, I use magic groom and cowboy magic in between.
thanks for your advice! yeah he has a white tail too, and a hind stocking and sock, so they get pretty gross too. I am able to clean his legs pretty well with just the curry but the tail is a whole other story...I will look into the baby oil...unfortunately idk when/if there will be a warm enough day to wash his tail...we dont have hot water or even a real wash stall at the barn :/
If I do get the chance I will try and wash it and maybe bag it for the winter!
I will sometimes, when really bad, wash it in a bucket and then condition it, comb it out, use a towel to get it dry as possible and then, because I desensitized him to it, blow dry it! Sometimes when it is clean I will bag it up to just keep it that way for awhile.
keeping a tail white
if your horse is stabled i think a tail bag would help you.
thanks for your advice! he goes out during the day but is stabled during the night.
He might be okay with a blow dryer...he saw one once and didnt go balistic!
Baby wipes, Detangualer, Warm wet towel, Mane & tail brush. should clean it all up.
I hate poopie tail....
Thanks! I will def. try the baby wipes, I dont even care if its still stained at all mostly just want to make him not so gross! My poor buddy!
