Hello there. As some of you know, I am soon going to be the proud owner of a family friend's little mustang mare, Belle. I can't get her yet, due to me being laid off last year and having trouble finding a job, but I make visits to see her when I can (sparse gas money + five hour drive = few visits, sadly)
Among other issues with her care, Belle is always constantly in a halter. She is never ridden unless I am working her in a headstall, and that halter never. Comes. Off. I am going to see her tomorrow, and I want to somehow get the halter off of her for at least a little while to give her hairless patches of skin a break, and hopefully they'll be too lazy to put it back on. But how do I go about doing this without offending our dear friends? I would appreciate any input you may have on this. I have another thread about Belle with more details about her care, but I'll add that in another post.
Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.
