|Starlight getting her first bath.|
|These are wash supplies: a hose, two wash brushes, a tail comb, |
a hoof knife, Orvus (soap) and a water bucket.
Washing is safe for the cattle and us as long as you do it correctly. Always make sure the animal knows you're there so they don't kick at you when you try to scrape manure off their hooves. Also, if you're are in a wash rack with other people and their animals, always be sure of your surroundings.
I hope to show you some other things this summer that we do to prep our show cattle. They sure are spoiled!
