Give a Cold-Weather ‘Sponge Bath'
Here’s how: After a brief curry-and-brush session, take a hand towel, soak it in hot water, and wring it out as completely as possible. Then, working quickly while the towel is still steaming, scrub the hair coat, using a vigorous, circular motion. Finally, brush the hair back in its proper direction with a clean, dry brush. Within minutes, your horse’s hair coat will be quite dry, impressively clean-looking, and lying flat. Presto! Instant clean horse.
