Cleaning Mares teats,udders?

Please tell me how to keep that black,crusty, stinking stuff from between my mares teats. I have tried everything others have said worked and it seems worse. Can you tell this is the first mare I have ever owned.

I am not sure, but I use Excalibur on my gelding. I am not sure if that would work

I use Dawn antibacterial dishwashing soap- it does great, and cuts grease so it really gets that yucky crud off...

I use Dawn in my pool also, it corrals the dog hair and makes it easier to clean.

It is the soap equivalent of duct tape.

I use KY as well -- I had a gelding I had to clean every week and anything antibacterial was very bad for doing that, and any type of soap really dried him out. The KY worked so well on him, I use it on my girls. If you don't get it all rinsed off, no big deal. After I get them good and clean, every evening I give them a good "udder rub". They love it and I get the stuff out before it gets smelly and gunky.

I use that on my mare, it works really well for her! She needs her udder/teats cleaned 1-2x a month, and I have been very happy with the results from Excalibur.

All my mares love getting rubbed in there so it never gets yucky and gunky. It's always dry and comes right out by rubbing it if you do it every day. They'll appreciate you for it too! Same with the geldings. When they drop their 'stuff' I make a bee line over to get the scaly stuff off before it ever develops into sticky gunk. They're probably afraid to drop for fear I'm coming to grab their winky dink!

Depending on how much nastiness is there, you should be able to just rub it off yourself with some water. SpotADots did my mare for me, and now I know Mariah's favorite itchy spot.

TMom- I still can't bring myself to purchase KY in the store. Maybe I should find a place to order it online.

I'll have to agree with Equine.Trailrider - a scratch a day keeps the udder yucks away. Even works pretty good if you only do it once a week or so. I just include it in the grooming routine.
