So a really long time ago Kate at The Adventures of Lucy held a contest and I won a bottle of Abraxas Supra Daily Shampoo! This weekend I realized that I had yet to try it out, sorry Kate! So I made plans for Sam to accompany to the barn on Saturday for my hack to take photos of bath time with my new shampoo!
After a wonderful ride in which the red mare behaved beautifully and let me adjust my new stirrups (next month’s product review!) a bajillion times, I hopped off and proceeded to the wash stall. Diamond has been having some skin issues lately, including being generally itchy, extra dandruff, as well as some fungus on her legs and face. She’s much improved over the last few weeks, but I was still interested to see how the Abraxas Shampoo worked on her.

Retail Price: $8.95
What I Paid: $0 (Thanks Kate!)
I liked the consistency of the shampoo the moment I poured it out of the bottle: not too thick, yet not too thin. It foamed up nicely, and I actually used my bare hands on Diamond’s legs with no adverse reactions — it’s a very mild shampoo which is perfect for this thin-skinned OTTB. Unfortunately, the smell wasn’t anything to write home about. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t good, which for a shampoo is a bit disappointing; personally, I enjoy the “smell” of bath time almost as much as I enjoy the bath itself. (more…)
