I agree, let the poor horse have a roll. Funny story, indulge me if you please...
My daughter & I finished a day of showing at the Provinicials, we were only doing the championship day & not staying for the next day's regular qualifying show. The fairgrounds were also holding a AQHA show so this place was abuzz with shiny, grooming to within an inch of your life showhorses. It was hot, in the middle of July and we had a 2 1/2 hour drive home in the heat, the horses worked hard all day. I hosed them down & took them to the outdoor sand arena & let them roll. They rolled, & rolled & rolled some more. I swear several people gasped & almost fainted when they saw this. Too funny, I was just rewarding the horses for a hard day's work & let them be comfortable for the ride home.
