    This is a comment more along the lines of "how to wash a horse" rather than "how to outfit a wash stall" but I have a really big horse- and he tends toward the greasy side (thick mane and draft fetlocks) and I always dillute my shampoos into a dish detergent squirt bottle to apply.

    When I was a young kid I used to put the shampoo on the horse, eventually I started putting the shampoo on the scrubby brush, and now I put the soap in water and then let the water carry the detergent through the grease to skin level- I find that if I don't I wind up with lots of later on the surface and at skin level things are still bone dry.

    Washing a horse isn't rocket science- do what you want to get the job done- I'm just mentioning my method because of the talk about soap dispensers and hands free. I wouldn't want a handful of shampoo- I want an 36 oz bottle of warm dilluted soap water.

    No wash stall should be without a spray bottle filled w/ listerine. Best thing ever for cleaning the dandruff from manes, and getting the crud off of curry combs, and crud generally.

    Be sure to check it regularly to make sure it is still charged sufficiently.
