Grey Horses and Mud are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly
One of my horses is a grey and white registered Paint. Coda has the most beautiful and shiny silvery white hair. She is absolutely gorgeous! Her spots are a kind of speckly dapply steel grey, but she really looks mostly white. As a result of her color, Coda is a mud magnet.
When she is clean, Coda practically glistens and glows. The problem is keeping her clean! Why is it that grey horses are always the dirtiest? Every time I go outside Coda is completely covered in mud. I don’t even know where she finds the mud, but somehow she does.
She attracts mud like a magnet, just like black clothes attract white cat hair. It doesn’t matter if I just spent three hours grooming her, give her five minutes in the field and she’s dirty again.
The other day I looked down to the field from my porch and saw three brown horses. Where did my grey horse go? Oh, she was hiding underneath a thick layer of brownish-black, crusty, sticky mud. This mud is hard to get off, too! No ordinary brush will do, you have to break out the heavy equipment and really put some elbow grease into the job to get her clean again.
She gets brushed every day, often times twice a day. In between groomings she finds a nice, muddy spot to roll…and roll she does! It seems like the light colored horses always stay the dirtiest. Have you noticed this trend?
Do you have a grey horse? If so, I’m sure you can sympathize with my story! How do you keep them clean?!
