CLEAN TURNOUT
 
Does anyone know of anything that can keep your horse clean if they must be turned out before a show? I don't like to bathe in the morning for winter shows- its just too cold. If she doesn't go out she is crazy!

My horses usually go back into the paddock after I've prepared them. All I do is cover as much of them as possible ie rugs, hoods, tail bag and boots and then of course there is a whole lot of praying from me, as Faith has 4 very big socks and a overwhelming desire to swim in the dam, be it hot or cold :roll: I'm usually washing sock in the morning :lol:

You could always cordon off a section of your paddock with electric tape if it is that important.

Put blankets, boots, hoods, tail bags, anything on it until you cant see any more hair.

Can you turn out with tail bags and jammies(the sleazy type thing that goes over their heads)?

Umm, if they're real Jammies, I wouldnt because Jammies are nice. Its always best to put a hood on over that kind of thing. Tail bags are ok, but dont expect everything to still be inside in the morning. Tie it tight. The best for turnout are the kinds that you actually braid into their hair.
