“We all want to do the best for our horses,” says Don Blazer, author and trainer. “And it is always a bonus when you can provide great care for your horse while saving a buck or two.”

You don’t need to spend big bucks on fancy medication shampoos to get the “grunge” out of your horse’s ears or off the front of the cannon bone on the hind legs, Blazer points out. A helpful hint is the use of Windex. Spray a little Windex on some cotton and it will quickly clean the oily, waxy, dirt buildup from the horse’s ears. Or use Windex to get the dirt off the front of hind cannon bones. Just spray it on, and then use a rubber curry brush to clean off the “grunge”.

“Be sure to carefully wash the Windex away with mild soap and water once you have cleaned the ears and legs,” Blazer reminded horsemen.
