I've had Sienna 3 years and she's never had a bath. At her other barn I took the hose and worked on her front legs a little, and neck, then took it away, etc. But there was no where to tie up and it was very close to an electric fence. So I never did a lot with it. At her new barn the have one of those things (I call it a car wash, LOL, I don't get around much) that is concrete and has cross ties in it so you can use warm water. The guy that works there said horses like it better than getting hut with cold water. But I haven't seen it work yet so does anyone know how much control you have over the flow, and can you stop and start the water? I want to get her used to being bathed not totally freak her (I have this image that those car wash plastic beaters will emerge from the wall and go up and down the length of her and throw some wax on too, LOL as she tears the cross ties out of the wall and runs away from home).
