So when I bought Ricky, I was told he was desensitized to being washed (hose-washing) and he does not like it one bit. I'd like to give him a nice bath before winter really kicks in but grr, he does not like hoses. Normally, I just fill up a bucket with water and use a sponge, but its just more convenient if I can wash him with a hose. He really needs a good bath because he's the type of horse that isn't groomed often.
So how would one go about doing this? Should I put it on a low mist setting? Where should I begin hosing? Should he be tied up or should someone hold him?
Thanks guys, I really appreciate it.
