    filly doesn't want to be bathed

    My 8 month old filly doesn't want to be bathed, what should I do?

    Is she trained to stand tied? Is it that she's afraid of the hose?

    I would start with desentizing her gently to things normal in a bath. Shampoo bottles, hoses, etc. For now, I would bucket wash her carefully. Try keeping her distracted with something like a net full of hay or some grain.

    It will take time, but she will learn to trust such things as scary spraying water and sudsy bubbles.

    That's a really good idea. I think I will try that.
