I spend so much time grooming. Xai really loves when I give him a full body grooming. He will stand still for as long as I play with and braid his pretty mane and tail. He's a diva, he's always clean and always prances around after I groom him, like he knows he's lookin' good lol. You can tell I groom him a LOT because he is black and he shines even in the middle of the night

I'm a grooming addict. My mare, Spirit, loves it. She usually falls asleep. I just wish I could find another spot to keep clean on her. My barn mates think I'm weird 'cause I hand wash her gucci and her teats once a week. Some of the mares here have never had that part washed.

I go over every inch of her and then some again!

I forgot to add this! Bean will wrap her neck around me and rub my thigh or she will play with my shoelaces if she gets really bored :p

I'm usually the last one to tack up and turn out my horse in my lessons because I spend so much time grooming. It relaxes me, and I LOVE when my horse gets joy out of it.

I love to see how low i can make my horse's head go. Grooming makes him sleepy.

For me it is a lot of work, because my horse is mostly white, and I have to give him a bath before every day that we take pictures, but I love it anyways! XD

I am a grooming fanatic, I have a need for well groomed horses but I hate the amount of time it takes doing such a picky job. I have to physically restrain myself from grooming too long when I am short on time to ride, which is pretty often.

I'm just like all of you guys, love love love to groom! It's a huge time suck for me...and I'm pretty sure the dirt on my horse just migrates onto me! My husband, though is definitely in the "can't I pay someone else to tack him?" club. I think that liking to spend that much close up, quality time with a horse shows that we truly enjoy them as patrners, not just as a tool to use and put away! When I first got Mick, he was not a fan of that much attention, but now he loves it.
