That's the only place we're allowed to give the horses a bath 'cause the water doesn't run down into the main part of the yard. My grandma hates it when the water runs down in the yard and so we can only give the horses a bath twice a year.

As for the fence, every time the horse got too near it we pulled her away from it... but she kept going right back. By the time we were through, she was calming down. She was the only one who did that. The other two didn't get very near it at all.

Forget the yard. Get a longer hose.

Never take chances that have a chance to be fatal. Once it's happened it's too late. I don't want to be the one to look at the damage afterward of something I easily could have easily prevented.

Most people are like Slinkies; they serve no real purpose, but they bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs.
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on for dear life.

im sorry but that is a sad excuse for bathing your horse next to that....so many things could have happen and even if you did push her out of the way she weighs a lot more then u and could have easily pushed U into it ....there are photos of a horses leg ripped to the bone on another forum due to barbed wire...so jus be careful

I probably won't be giving her another bath... she was just too much trouble. (though, I guess with a nick like 'Trouble', she's bound to live up to it.

My own two horses are used to it and don't get too near it. They're fine to give a bath right there.

Then do not give HER a bath next to it. Simple as that.

I already said that I probably won't be giving her another bath. I don't like working with a horse as... problematic... as she is.

Like I said, my to horses are fine to bathe. She was trouble. I doubt I'll even mess with her again, as I really don't like her. She's a pest and is always getting in the way.

Is anyone else going to work with her to get her used to having baths or are you just gonna give up?

That's a bit of a harsh thing to say about a horse, don't you think?
