I will be riding a haflinger in a show on the 12-13th of june. He has just been pulled off pasture because he is fat fat fat...
Before pulling him in and housing him in a paddock with shelter I noticed he hasstarted to scratch his mane out.
Eeeeekkkkkk it is going to be a mess if I don't do something soon.
I would like to wash the winter gunge from his entire body mostly the mane, but our weather just does not know what the heck it wants to do.
Snow rain wind cold warm....it just doesnt want to stay warm enough for me to wash him
We do have a wash rack with hot water though.
Is there something I can do to help with his "itchiness"? I can see there is a few spots under his mane that have less coat hair. He loves to be scratched there....so no wonder he does this to himself.
No he is in the diet room he is probly bored on top of it.
Should I buck up and bath him and then walk him til he is dry? Any product I can put in his mane and tail?
I just noticed he even rubbed his tail some last night.
