Talking Applying linament

I'm torn between posting this here, or on rider health.

My daughter (9) has made a huge improvement showing responsibility and determination to ride (that's a story for another post, lol). She's been riding Odie almost everyday!

At 21, and having been retired for the last 5 years due to arthritis, as you can imagine he's a little sore from all the hard work...walking serpentines, figure 8's, circles, and the occaisional trotting around the arena is insanely taxing on the old man

Anyway, last night I taught J (daughter) how to apply linament on his back and hind quarters. Needless to say there's a lot of surface area to cover.

Oh how I wish I had a camera!!!! Her face was PRICELESS! Now, she's a bit of a drama queen, so I'm sure her reaction was due to that but I got the scrunched face, hand over the mouth, other hand waving the smell away, and the collapsing back into the wall "oh mom, that's horrid! I'm supposed to TOUCH that?!?!? I'm sure that's against the law!"

I know there's stuff out there that doesn't have such a strong smell, but I just like to be cruel, mwaaahaaahaa

Just had to share the adventure of introducing the next generation to all the "fun" stuff involved with having horses
