Nothing better then...

a clean horse!

It was windy but Mona and I forged forward with our plans to bath our horses. We shut all the doors and windows, made sure the water was really warm and went to work.

I soaped his whole body, cleaned his legs, did a really good shampoo and conditioner on his tail and even cleaned his man parts- until the water got to cold and he was not having it anymore so that is to be continues on another day :)

more carrots please :)



 After towel drying his legs and tail, I brushed him mane, put shine stuff in his tail and braided it, put meds on his cuts and gave him a few kisses... then we headed out to walk. Now the second we got outside he was a wild unbroke stalloin- it was awesome.


Once he calmed down we ate some grass

Let Henry eat his grain in a stall while I went down to his stall to clean, drop his extra hay and fill his water... came back and he had remodeled...

Layered him up and took him to his stall...





Gave the boys carrots (Henry and both his neighbors) and headed home...

Ahhhh I love a clean horse!

Vet is coming tomorrow to do the shot clinic so just a light ride for Henry (I have to work boo!), lesson Tuesday, idk Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday, lesson Saturday.

  1. Great that you can bathe them during winter!
    We had more snow and some ice rain for good measure yesterday with more snow forecast for the week ahead and temps to drop to well below 0C.
    I think I might look into moving to California!
    Not sure my riding would be up to scratch though!

    Great to see green grass and blue skies - was beginning to forget that the world could be anything buy white & grey!

  2. So very jealous of your clean nice smelling shiny horse! I want one, too :) Our barn winterizes the wash rack so no baths at our barn till spring.

  3. I will send my two monsters to you. I am pretty sure they have never been that clean! And I am sure they will appreciate not being in -50 degree weather ;-)

    1. That is an older one- the new one is at home since he rolled in the shavings so it needed to be washed :)
