Thelma demands no less than 20 minutes of brushing even if we don't go riding. I find it soothing and I like to take the time to look her over thoroughly. I have found a ton of old and deep scars all over her back legs. I am certain those have something to do with why she is so bad about ropes on her legs. :(
She doesn't even need to be tied. She just stands in the aisle, doors wide open, not even a halter on. She's a good girl. But, Oh man! If I miss one day of brushing her, woo!! Do I get the stink eye. Lol. I enjoy it very much when it is Thelma. Mana is not so patient and makes the whole thing kind of miserable if it takes too long.
