LOVE a clean horse :)
Saturday didn't pan out as I would have liked, but sometimes life gets in the way. I had to go to a walk through at my daughters day cares new location so I didn't get to the barn till 9:45.
Sadly, I missed the lesson but still rode. I planned to just hack around and then decided to work on counter canter... Henry was a little opinionated so I called over my trainer to help. We had a mini lesson working on counter canter which was HARD work for us both but good work :)
Cooled us both out cause we were pooped!
Since all the lesson people were done in the wash racks, I decided to give Henry a good bath.. including man parts.
I scrubbed and scrubbed- body, legs (hind legs, gotta get that funk off), tail, man parts... his man parts get SO dirty! I do it once a week and always have SO MUCH to clean- is that what ya'll find too?!
I ordered some of this to see if it helps break up the grime in there easier...
I don't know about you all, BUT I love having a clean horse. It seriously makes me so happy! Especially after a hard but productive ride :)
I let Henry dry a little while I cleaned tack, made his grain and took him home.
Gave kisses, filled Henry and Louie's waters (it's been 100+ yuck) and headed home.
Sunday he got the day off... there is a new fire not far from the barn- ugh...
Praying that they get it under control soon! It doubled in size over night and is only 10% contained.
Monday is supposed to be a hack day but I just got a text that my trainer rode him so looks like I'll just be doing some chores tonight.
Lesson Tuesday, off Wednesday, hopefully a lesson Thursday, turn out Friday and a lesson Saturday.
