    My filly absolutely hated her sides being touched. One day, I put her up against a wall and rubbed her sides, and I kept rubbing, dancing around with her until she stopped. When she stopped, I took my hand away. After doing this a few times, she was comfortable with my hands on her sides, and then I took her to her belly button. Then her udders. And once I got all the gunk out, she decided she REALLY liked having that particular part of her anatomy rubbed. =]

    Chloe loves it and April hates it...

    But I use warm water, sponge, and my hand to get it clean.

    OMG so normally, my mare doesn't really care either way that I'm cleaning her, as I mentioned earlier in this thread. But tonight was a different story! She's in heat right now, and I went to clean her and I'm taking a sponge and getting all the gunk out, and my friend who was up by her head starts cracking up!

    I look up, and my mare has her head twisted to the side and her lip twitching and is absolutely LOVING IT!!! LOL

    There's a new "boyfriend" at the barn that's all hers apparently...he's a palomino and about her size and SO cute! (too bad he's a gelding, they'd make beautiful babies!!) she had just been outside with him all day in the pasture flirting (he is in LOVE with her, it is SO cute to watch them together!!) I am just SURE she was thinking of him while I was cleaning her! LOL!

    Duchess doesnt like it all and has threatend to cow kick me a couple times, but the last time I cleaned it she enjoyed, so maybe it was because she was in heat. Hoofprints in the sand, that was funny, " Im sure she was thinking of him while I was cleaning her" lol

    I use a glove, just because I have a thing about that gunk on there... I hate the way it feels if it gets between my fingers but I also use glycerine because its non-irritating and is good for the skin anyway
