Waw congratulations on your work to find this poor horse. One lucky animal to still be alive and end up in your hands. Give yourself a pat on the back.

• Horses: 0 today was bath day....I had to patiently follow her around the turnout area for about 15 minutes....then it was bath time... I had some malasabe (spelling?) shampoo for my dog and was excited when I read on the bottle it could be used for I used that on her legs and chest where the flies have been trying to eat her alive...and then some regular soap on the rest of first she wasnt sure about the bath and think you could almost see the light bulb turn on behind her eyes and when you ran the water on her neck she would lift and toss her head while leaning into the stream...i had to fight to get her backside because she wanted it on her neck! dont know if you can tell in the pictures but her legs are a kind of nasty brown looking color...thats blood from fly was a little rainy today and so it was already muddy... but in the little puddles you could see crimson running off of her... I felt so terrible...So she is going to get alot of baths because there is still gunk caked into her hair...but the bath made her feel better and she was showing some of her attitude...She also got a small amount of mushy grain..and she loved it...she talked for the first time when Clare kept walking back and forth with other buckets for the other horses...each time she would walk by Aesha (my decided name for her, which means "alive" ) would mutter at was adorable...but here are some bath camera was doing something funky with the color so they look blueish....

She has The Bloody shoulder marking!
Good om you for saving her..... GREAT JOB ON THE TAIL!!! I saw the first pics and thought OMG what can u do with that lol

Thought id add this incase u didnt know the legend of the bloody shoulder.
Once upon a time many years ago in the desert of Arabia, there was a Bedouin warrior who owned a very special Arabian mare - a mare he rode into battle and to whom he entrusted his life.
There was a very special relationship, a bond of trust, love and mutual respect.
Either would have given his life for the other, In fact, their bond of trust was so strong that the mare often "read her master's thoughts," doing exactly what he needed at exactly the right time, allowing them to win many battles and to be the envy of all Bedouin tribes.
Years passed and one day in a fierce battle the master was severely wounded, falling across the neck and shoulder of his beloved war mare.

Although her master was unconscious and she was many miles from home, the mare balanced him across her shoulder, carefully carrying toward home. She... for days without food or water to return her master to his family.
When the courageous mare finally arrived at the encampment, she was exhausted and weak, and her master dead. As the family carefully removed the master's body, they saw that the mare's shoulder was heavily stained with his blood, leaving a distinct red mark on her shoulder.
Although they had lost their leader, the Bedouin family was eternally grateful to the mare for delivering his body from the battle. They knew that the long journey had been difficult for the mare, and they were very concerned for her because she was heavily in foal.
As the days passed, the cherished mare received only the best food and care, and she was visited and admired not only by members of the master's tribe, but all the other tribes in the area.
Finally, the time of her foaling arrived, and there was a great concern for the cherished war mare. But when the long-awaited foal was born, he was vigorous and healthy and of exceptional quality. He also bore the identical "bloody shoulder" that his mother had from her master's blood.
It was then that the Bedouin tribe realized that Allah had rewarded this mare and their tribe for their courage, loyalty and faith and that the "bloody shoulder" was a reminder of his favor.
Since that time, hundreds of years have passed, but once in a great while there is a mare of exceptional beauty, quality and courage who foals a very special foal graced by God with the "bloody shoulder." The Bedouins have continued to believe this is a sign of Allah's favor. Who are we to disagree?

May we all see horses through the eyes of children

Awww kudos to you for helping this poor gal out! I'm sure she'll turn around in no time, and I suppose I'll be the 97th person to WOW on the tail that must have taken hours! Good luck!
