Useful things: Mud-buster-thingy!

A quick useful thing for you - and although I don't know its real name or who makes them...(!), Cristina found it online!  Thanks Cristina :-)

You can get them at our local Mole Valley Farmers store in South Molton or online here: http://www.oakfield-direct.co.uk/super-groomer.ir?cName=for-the-horse-grooming-scrapers
(which is also cheaper than the link in the comments section) and after seeing how brilliant they are, quite a few of the rehab owners stock up on them and give them as Xmas pressies to all their horsey friends. 
They are made of bendy squiggles of rubbery plastic and there is nothing so good at removing mud.  The really great bit is that because they are soft and flexible even horses who are very ticklish or thin-skinned are happy for you to use them AND you can use them on legs and on heads and even the fussiest TB doesn't object to them. 

They have the added bonus of being cheap and cheerful enough to have several on the yard, which is essential because once you have one, if you lose it you will be REALLY cross!

I have been using these for years. They are great, for mud, sweat and bathing. They last for many years too, as long as you can stop others borrowing and not retuning them :-)

OOOoooh, I'll be off the Mole Valley when I'm back in the West Country at Christmas then!

I've never used one of those for the mud, but I'll have to try it for sure! I could almost (almost) wish it was cold enough to blanket here, since the boys are all mudballs.
