I haz a shiny!

Heh heh, my 2 year old got her very first bath today! And was she EVER unimpressed when we started. We had quite the riot getting her used to the hose (on a very fine mist mode, but you would have sworn Satan was riding an orange pumpkin and jabbing her with a pitchfork). Soaping her down went fine, she enjoyed that, and for rinse mode, she snorted and pranced a bit and then stood stock still for me to spray her all over and scrub with my hands! So I'm very happy with her.

Also, anyone who's been following her conformation threads, I am finally happy with her weight! I think she's looking perfect now, she just needs more muscle which we're working on with lunging!

Just for the record, for anyone who hasn't seen her, this is what she looked like when I purchased her about 2.5 months ago. I know it was winter and she was shaggy, but still, I'm loving the difference!



And what she looks like now, after her refreshing bath!

Great job!! She is gorgeous.

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/
