Horse afraid of grooming
Hope you can help me. I am fostering a horse that was badly neglected, emaciated and undernourished. Therefore her coat, feet, mane and tail are in terrible condition. Well, she stood just fine for the farrier. Her feet are on the mend. The problem arises when I go to groom her. She is afraid of the brush, curry comb, and don't even bring out the clippers. She will not let any grooming tool near her. Any ideas on how I can handle this. I need to get her groomed. At one time I am sure she was a pretty mare. Thanks! Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
