    I had the same problem many years ago - exactly as you describe, a sticky mess in a long winter coat. The only thing that worked was Radiance Dry Shampoo, and it worked really well.

    I do a combo of ground/net, really it depends. If the weather is foul, I'll hang hay nets in the shed to keep down wastage/trampling. If I'm traveling, I'll provide hay nets for the BO to hang...

    I did dentals on my horse, as mentioned, same as any other body part. IIRC, my vet's pix run about $65 each plus barn call. My horse did not require sedation, but a squirrelly one might.

    I've used the BOT polos while driving, but I switched to the Draper Saratogas. I felt they were a bit more secure as a polo coming loose while driving can be a bit more complicated than riding.
