I have two Questions 1,should or could i leave a tail bandage in overnight if the horse was in a stall and it was wrapped loosely?

2.I need to wash my horse but it's winter and shes not rugged and we don't have warm water but the coldest temp is only 5 Celsius but she is real shaggy and has matted hair on her chest and the girth area what should I do about that?
I'll show a pic too if that helps.

As long as your horse isn't bothered by the tail bandage, it's fine to leave overnight. The only problem I've ever had with it was with a horse that chewed it off and proudly displayed it all over his stall.

I agree with Jody about the washing. Is there any hot water in the bathroom or something? If not, just make sure she's dry and warm after. You don't want her to catch a chill.
I would still cover the horse and wash in parts, but the warm water helps the horse not catch a chill
