    Default Vetrolin

    How often do you give your horse a Vetrolin bath?

    This is a retired barrel racer who is basically a pasture pet now ... may be brought into light work for short trail rides, hacking around the farm.

    I've always rinsed horse off after every ride with vetrolin. Love it. Don't know if it actually helps but I love the smell & I do think it provides a cooling sensation.

    In the really hot months, I usually will hose my guy and then sponge him with some linament and vinegar (sometimes this but linament always). I have no idea if it makes a difference, but like whitfield said, the cooling sensation I feel makes me think it does so I do it.

    I usually only do it after a hard work out, one in which I think it may be possible for my older mare (24) or my young mare (4) to get sore.
