Knowing full well that I had forgotten my big body sponge for bathing I scooped it up and went back to the barn. The bottle of shampoo turned out to be Extreme Groom Tea Tree Shampoo and it claimed to be good for hot spots and fungus.
Basically I ripped off the sponge, went to bathe my horse and the shampoo slowly fell to the bottom of my trunk never to be seen again.
A few weeks ago I noticed the crud on Prair's hind cannons was worse than normal and figured I should probably attack it before fungus season secends in full force. Remembering the weird bottle from the show I dug it out and scrubbed Prair's legs down after one of our rides.
It smells nice, it's thick enough that you don't waste a lot during application and otherwise seemed very normal.
I repeated the process again last week (letting the suds sit for about 10 minutes before rinsing) and noticed that the crud is significantly improved. It's still there (isn't it always), but looks way more controlled and less like it's slowly taking over her entire leg.
I don't know if this is the most effective product out there, but it seems gentle, and frankly anything that can take on the cannon bone crud without burning off your horses skin earns a spot in my bathing bucket.
I don't know what makes it extreme though. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to be doing backflips while I apply it, or perhaps use it while skydiving.... Frankly the bottle design looks like they just stole some Paul Mitchell and photoshopped their name onto it.
|Paul Mitchell called - they want their bottle back.|
All in all though - a thumbs up and worth a try.
