She whickered happily and nosed my bucket as if she knew she was getting a wash and was exited.
I gently sponged her and with every sponge came a new, lighter shade of grey.
When her now almost white coat was damp I put some of the apple smelling shampoo on my hands and massaged it through.
Her lower lip went soft when I rubbed the shampoo just under her neck… she liked it!
After a rinse I rubbed the coconut conditioner over my wet hands and there was now a rich smell of mixed coconut and apple in the air.
Rinsing off for the last time her mane and coat sparkled like a midsummer morning.
“Good girl Poppy,” I praised her while admiring my handy work.
I rubbed her down with an old cloth and planting a kiss on her cheek and closing the gate behind me, I skipped into the house overjoyed to be a pony owner;
