I love grooming. If I'm ever rushed through grooming before I ride it leaves me feeling a bit off. I like to have the chance to bond with the horse a bit before I ride. Sometimes when I'm bored and at the barn I'll just go through the stalls and groom as many horses as I can. I like making them clean

I also recently have been pulling a lot of manes because all the horses had the summer off. I think I'm addicted. o.o
I could just pull manes all day. At least on the horses that stand still for it...

My family (on both sides) have been showing and grooming dogs for generations...my co-workers all say I am a little OCD when it comes to grooming. Apparently it isn't just dogs though because I love grooming horses too.

I enjoy it as well and mine seem to enjoy it,especially bath days..they go to sleep. It's relaxing and all part of having healthy beautiful horses.

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

Grooming for me is the best way to relax and talk to my horses. Kodah always looks at me, she has to sniff everything that touches her as if for approval first. Spirit gets a look on his face like 'oh yeah! right there, scratch right there!", he shifts his weight to the opposite side so I can get further over on the side I'm working on. I look them all over for cuts and scrapes, bot flies, treat hooves if they need it, give them supplements if they need it, give em a cool shower in the extreme heat. I wash the bottom of all four legs first spray those down so they're dry and ready for fly spray when we're done. Yep, Yep, we have a good time!
