Jaxxon's first bath (and Gypsie... and Dakota)

Decided to give all three of my horses a bath the other day... Started out just me giving Jaxxon a bath... my cousin Tamara came over to help give Gypsie a bath... and then she went home and my cousins Whitney and Autumn came to help give Dakota a bath.

Jaxxon’s never had a bath (that I know of)... I was expecting him to put up a bit of a fuss or something, but he did surprisingly well. Found out that he’s terrified of a hosepipe spray-nozzle (he -freaked- out and started rearing up and trying to get away from it)... but he’s just fine with the plain hosepipe, lol. He didn’t move at all until I went to get his bum, then he just walked to the end of the rope and stood there.



Gypsie got the next bath. She’s easy to give a bath... she’ll just stand there, but gets nervous if the water goes too near her ears/head. She’s just fine with the hosepipe spray-nozzle, thankfully. It made giving her a bath a lot faster and easier.



Dakota was last... (lol, we saved the hardest for last...). He loves water, but hates baths. He loves the hosepipe spray-nozzle, too... he wants me to hold it and let him try to ‘get’ the water with his mouth, silly boy. He’s also perfect for soaking his front legs, chest, and back... but he hates his back legs and stomach to get sprayed and tries to run away from the water. Thankfully he’s not too bad... after a while, once he learned that he wasn’t going to get away, he stopped and let me do whatever.

What a lovely day you had there! I swear your Jaxxon has the nicest copper color!!

I love that picture of Dakota with his lovely pricked ears!

Thank you!

Yeah, Jaxxon just 'glows' when he's all shiny and clean... Lol.

It was a really fun day, but my g-ma got annoyed with me 'cause I used the hosepipe for over four hours and probably ran the water bill up a good bit... Lol.

Said next time I give the horses a bath, I'm going to have to do one a day. XD!

And let me guess, they rolled when you put them away after the bath?
I loved bathing horses. It's such a nice bonding time with them. Good for you for taking the time to bath them. I bet they felt lovely afterwards.

All clean and shinny.

Surprisingly... no. They didn't roll (at least, not where I could see... they've got smart!)

They felt so soft afterwards... I love giving horses baths...

Pretty ponies Odd question, but are they tied to a tree?
    06-23-2010, 01:56 AM

No, they aren't tied. I made my own sort of crossties (fifteen/twenty foot ropes tied up high in the tree so that they hang down and have a good bit of give with slim chains attached to the ends that I can clip to my horses halters... price, about 30 dollars... the ropes/chains will break if enough pressure is put on them) about two years ago, but the tree was struck by lightening and half of it had to be cut down, so the crossties had to be moved, and now I just clip my horses to one chain (besides Dakota.. he has to be clipped to all three when it comes to bathtime because he wiggles around so much, lol)... and they're fine.
