I love it too, like all of you guys! ...

It is so soothing & relaxing to groom. My mare is also a fan!!

I'm also quite fantical about keeping my mare's grooming box & all of her brushes & grooming supplies clean!

I love to groom! Sometimes i just go to the barn to groom and spend time with my horses!

Talking to your horse is sometimes all the therapy you need.

I'm obsessed with grooming! And buying things for my grooming kit. My horse thrives off attention, and falls right asleep when I start grooming. When I'm done he starts following me around like "hey, lady! I'm not done being brushed!"

I don't like giving baths though, because he's on turnout 24/7 and as soon as he gets back to the field, he drops down and rolls. Silly mustangs. :P

Meeeee!!! It only works if you have one or two horses, if you ride a lot of horses then it's not practical. 12 hours of grooming a day wouldn't leave you much time to ride! That's the one thing I hate about showing is that before and at the show because my horse is already spotless I do t get to groom her like I usually do.

I love grooming I find it very relaxing and great time to bond with your horse. My biggest regret regarding grooming is that I can't do it more often! Lol

One of the girls who used to board at my barn used to make comments about how weird it was that so many of us would spend so much time grooming. We'd all just roll our eyes and turn our attention back to doing just that.
Honestly, I found it kind of sad that she didn't seem to take pleasure in doing anything with her horse aside from riding.

I love grooming because I get to find a horse's favorite spot and make them do funny faces; I love standing back to see how clean and shiny they look; I love how it sculps my arms lol (currying is hard work!) ... but I hate how my nostrils get full of their dust and then I need to blow it out all day afterwards. I've tried not breathing: it only partially works until I need to gasp for a breath of air. ;)

A ride a day keeps the worries away!

I love to groom, Im up to 4 horses now and its nothing for me to spend 2 hours out there working on them. Wish I had time for more baths, but alot of times they come in with burrs in their tails and manes, drives me crazy. My paint gelding has a tail I could just brush forever...he likes that too:) hes not too crazy about anything else, but he suffers thru it poor boy. years ago he kept rubbing a hunk out of his mane, and just when it would grow out he would do it again. So I decided to mohawk him...he was horrified by my taking all his mane...he never rubbed it off again, and everytime I come near him with sissors even just to trim hes get that look in his eye that says "dont do it again" LOL Hes pretty vain about his hair. something I can just sense since thats the only thing he tolerates being brushed. All my other horses could just stand there all night to be brushed, Molly, my recent addition, wasnt treated to well at some point so grooming has been our bonding/trusting time. Honestly I wouldnt want someone just riding me all time without giving me some attention other than riding. Shes starting to like the grooming a bit more now. Whoever did the number on her I could just smack..took me forever just to get her where I can touch her ears and head, she would throw her head up and get a wild eye look. Poor girl, now Im getting to where I can rub her all the time without the panic'd look. I got my two paints when they were 6 months so pretty much most of our time together was grooming...and it helped both of us get used to each other and me time to learn about horses. Its my break from the world, and thanks to smartphones I can just turn my pandora radio on and we all enjoy some music too:)

I love grooming! It's super relaxing for Rosie and I. It's great bonding time and since she's grayed to the point of being almost completely white, I take pride in having a clean, shiny horse. So many people comment on how white I get her! When I curry an itchy spot on her, she leans herself right into the currycomb and lets her lower lip hang. It's hilarious. She also has this gorgeous long, thick mane that's shoulder length, and a ground length tail that always comes out of the tail bag, gah >.< she's lucky I like grooming her!

I also love doing my BO a huge favour and grooming her horses for her. Most of them are out often so I clean up the ones that come in at night. It's a great chance to find their favourite spots to be groomed and such.
