Baby oil bath?
I have seen the baby oil bath mentioned a few times and I was wondering what it is and how to do it.

ive never heard of the baby oil bath before, but i have heard of using baby oil with a dry cloth and using it to sort of "buff" a shine on a horse.

I took my horse to a bath and after the normal shower I putted baby oil on him all. and left it in the coat. he shined like an angel. but when i brushed him and was using the curry comb the oil got full of dirt and was stuck in his coat so I washed it out. now he looks perfect and I can brush him without any problems. I wonder if the baby oil gives the coat the shine and when you wash it out the coat looks so good, what could it be that makes it like that?

This is really ridiculous, but important as well.

if you mix 1/2 cup with a gallon of water, apply with sponge and leave it on for 3 days, then wash it off, it will help your horse shed. just make sure you don't turn them out to avoid sunburn. it worked on my horses :)
sorry for the horrible grammar and punctuation...on my phone :(

I was going to be away from the stall for a while because I was taking importand tests in school for 1 week and I didn't want my horse to look bad when I came back so I did this and it works! I bathed my horse and then gave alot of baby oil to the coat and washed it out when I came back. the coat was so soft and shiny and I has never looked better! He's also happy :)
