I'd also recommend her not to trim hoofs, give shots (especially rabies and tetanus) and float teeth. It's a mother nature problem, you know....

We do all of that to keep our horses healthy and live the longer life unlike those wild horses.

Yeah. And don't apply ointment to cuts, fly spray, bathe, and heck.... you might as well leave feeding and watering up to mother nature, too! Lol

My, she's mighty considerate, eh?

I unno... if all of this is M.N's problem, then why ride horses at all? Why bother to do anything with them? It's cause we want to, and because we give a **** [about them].

I would have thought that instructor might've offered to hold a foot or something to assist you.. But, my BM is like that too. "She's just a horse." No worries. Do what you can; pick and choose what you can/can't use. :)

BTW! Thanks to the OP, I'm going to work on cleaning that today now! LOL!

My gelding has the cleanest sheath ever - I've never had to clean it in 3 years.

My mare, on the other hand, has the dirtiest udders ever - I have to clean them once a week.

Mares usually like their udders cleaned. Especially in the summer when they get sweaty and sticky, it itches for goodness sake!

I used Excalibur for both the mares and geldings, it has cooling menthol in it and they seem to like it.

Even if your gelding doesn't seem to be dirty you should still do it to get the "bean" out. I won't get into details about that, just Google it - also some youtube videos about it. Also it's good to get them used to it for when they absolutely need it done.

But yeah, the mares dig it a lot - even my super b*tchy mare loves it. They are just like, "ahhhhhh, thanks!"

Yep, I clean my mare's at least once every couple weeks. And she L-O-V-E LOVES it LOL!!! It's hilarious (and sick haha!) She will bend her head into her chest and wiggle her nose around, and she will actually pick up her back leg (looks like a dog when it hikes its leg!)...it is SO FUNNY to watch!!!

Flame is another mare who loves it. First time I did it she almost fell over, it was hilarious!
