Guess what Citrus did after I bathed him?

I gave Citrus a head to tail bath yesterday (after our fabulous trail ride around the lake-no pics of that because I wanted to concentrate on riding- he even went into the lake :) ). He does not like the sponge on his head but will stand as I spray him??? I tried to make his mane into a mo-hawk, but it would not stand up..... of course, after he was all clean and his whites were white, he ROLLED!!!!

Haha, of course. It never fails. One thing I have found that sometimes helps is if you leave him tied or stay with him to keep him up until after he is dry. For some reason, I can bathe mine and if I wait to turn them loose until they are dry, they don't roll.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Haha. Very typical. I, like smrobs, find that waiting until Ricci is dry helps a lot. At least mostly dry. Or I can feed her. =]

Lol!! Lesson learned..... I think bath time will have to be all we do instead of the last thing we do.
