any rug next to a horses skin should be natural fibre, baby oil bath or not, so cotton, wool or jute

I just don't ever shampoo and when i wash her i just rinse her coat with warm water with iodine in it(just the stuff you'd put on cuts) it makes her coat go a beautiful colour
I probably wouldn't do this with a grey tho :P

i only shampoo once a month at most and don't use dyes/coat polishes etc
tai always has a lovely shiney coat - guess thats why i don't see why i'd use it :)

Have to agree with taihoa on this one i would have thought it would attract dust??? rob is always shinny :D

yeah - my bay park hack Pilot could look quite dull after a bath - unfortunately he was a)in a diet paddock during the day that got a bit dusty and b) enjoyed rolling around madly sothat no matter what covers he had on he would get really dirty!! So when I was showing every weekend he had to have a bath every week too.

Does this not attract the dust to the coat though?

IMPORTANT!

BE CAREFUL NOT TO OVER USE AS IT ATTRACTS THE SUN AND WILL BURN YOUR HORSE!

i wash with shampoo, then sweat scrape then i spounge the warm water with babyoil in it over the coat, mane and tail and then i put rugs on and turn the horse out to dry and let the coat absorb the oil. Theres no point doing the babyoil bath if your going to wash it out straight after with shampoo... the whole point of it is for the babyoil to replace the oils that the horses coat looses when sweating, grooming, in the rain etc etc :)

I was with normal shampoo, warm baby oil, tails and manes i wash out again in vinegar and then again with shampoo just because i hate it when it collects dirt haha but you can never get all the baby oil all out!

Prouod SB owner - a tip for your back number tape. UNdo button closest to your waist and thread end of tape through and tie in a bow, then do up button tucking the bow well inside your jacket. No bows on show! :)
