If she gives you a hard time going in from the side, try going in from the rear. Thats if you feel comfortable/safe standing behind your horse. All my girls will allow that but Vida and her daughter both will pin thier ears if I try it from the side.

That's good! Glad she behaved most of the time when you cleaned them.
IMaybe once a month or so? Sometimes less often, it depends how much it's needed. ;)

I do it pretty often, maybe once a week on everyone but Fras. I figure my husband can clean hers she is always really gunky
If they are scratching their tales and you just wormed them they probably need a cleaning. I like to get it before it gets nasty.
