Bath bite and cleaning boy stuff
We gave Citrus a bath today because he keeps finding the mud puddle and making himself filthy- beyond a bit of mud- more like covered in it.
He was a bit of a pill. He actually would bite the water. At one point, he was irritated and put his teeth on me- not a chomp just a set it on my skin. I yelled out and he stopped, but what is that all about? Maybe he needs more bath manners. I also cleaned his boy stuff- that was not fun but clearly necessary.
On a good note, I got up behind my cousin on him. I got off. Then I put my daughter up there and walked him with the two of them on him for about ten steps. He did not get emotional so I took them off and told him he was a good boy :) Hooray for riding double, even if it was short.
