    The gelding I half lease loves to be groomed everywhere and is particularly fond of being groomed on his stomach, hind quarters and on the inside of the top of his hind legs where he may be itchy and a little sticky. The professional stable groom handles the major grooming, bathing, clipping, etc. It is an exceedingly cold winter and I have a half lease so can only touch up groom him 3 days a week after I ride and am looking for something other than water or shampoo. What can I use to make him more comfortable and cleaner near his private areas on the inside upper legs? What about the lavender grooming wipes or witch hazel patches (have only seen them for people not horses)? Suggestions for stomach and behind front elbows also appreciated. I have brushed he loves and newly purchased happy happy hands grooming gloves as well.

    In the winter & at shows I use unscented baby wipes with aloe. In the winter any dampness on the skin dries quick enough they don’t get a chill. I’ve also made my own by cutting a roll of high quality paper towels in half & adding a mixture of water, baby shampoo, & one of those tubes of oil for the hot oil for hair treatments. Either one has worked fine.

    My mini mare gets super gross between her butt cheeks and upper inner tights from urine dripping into those areas. I use Burt’s bees baby wipes because they seem less irritating than other brands. They don’t seem to irritate her skin at all and do a nice job loosening up the crud so it wipes off cleanly.
