Yeah...I might. Because the drying time is my big problem at this point.
They may just have to be hosed. Not such a big deal when I want to ride and not use wraps. But for trimming they'll just have to get hosed. Unless I wait til the weekend when I can ride and trim in the same outing.
Ahhh...the troubles...not bad troubles to have though! Means spring is coming! Whoot! And that means Rolex is coming. Whoot. And that means summer is coming. Whoot! double Whoot!
A good horseman doesn't have to tell anyone...the horse already knows.
I actually bought a Shamwow last week. It is like a big square of felt, I think it is best for soaking up large volumes of liquid. I have a hunch it would NOT be useful for wet mud. I will try it post bath.
For quick drying of a muddy horse...it might be faster to just hose the horse...and THEN apply Sham wow.
My 7 yr old son was strangely excited that I had bought a Shamwow, I guess he likes the TV commercials. I came into the living room and caught him with the Shamwow, a bowl and a bottle of Kahlua. He was planning on re-creating the TV ad!!! "NOOOOO....STEP AWAY FROM THE KAHLUA!!!!!!"
I should add....if body mud is the issue and full hosing not an option, you may want to think about a heavier mesh fly sheet, like a Bid D or Kensington. It will keep most of the mud off the body.

I love cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.
