Ok, well I am new to horses and I was given a stud who is about 4 or 5. It took 7 days for me to be able to hose him down without a lead rope. He did that for me today! Progress.....lol He loves to drink from the spray nozzle so when he lets me spray him I let him drink. He makes this funny lip curling face when he does. Can anyone explain that one to me? Next, I try to brush him but he wants to bite the brush. I was told to let him smell it and when I try to let him he tries to bite it everytime. He'll let me brush by his chest and front flanks but no where else. Any tips? On to the next one....bathing....he will not let me bathe him. As soon as I get near him with the sponge he walks off. I know I probably sound stupid with these questions but this is my first horse so I am still learning. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks to everyone,
