Just wondering what are your favorite techniques for getting mud of your horses legs?? I was thinking of clipping the hair down short so that they wouldn't be as muddy but I didn't want her to get anything from having little hair on her legs??

Thanks, muddy horse owner. :D

depends on the weather. nothing is better than a good hosing :) or a bucket full of warm water and shampoo and a sponge and scrub scrub scrub :) the soapy water and a sponge works wonders :)

if its cold though i generally dont worry about it other than a good brushing. if the need arises ill hose their legs. even in winter it doesnt get really cold here so a hosing is ok in most instances.

I hose mine off when they are still wet. Before they head to the barn for the night if they have been in the mud. Way simpler than getting the dryed stuff off.

Thanks for the tips :) I can't rinse her legs every night as she is stabled a half hour away but when it gets a little warmer I can soap them down.
