Smile time to spoil!

Hey guys! I've been sick and haven't seen my horse in FOUR DAYS!
For me that feels like forever. Tomorrow I'm going to go and spoil her.
When she gets spoiled, this is what goes on.
She comes in for her grain, then goes out with her buddies for hay.
She gets to stay out until all her hay is gone
Then she gets to come out and we walk around the barn and find all the good grass.
Then we get more hay/grass while she gets brushed for at least an hour
does anyone else's horse really like being groomed?!
She makes the funniest faces and noises.
Then I get on bareback and we just putz around the trails and roads.
Then we get to go eat dinner, than more hay with her buddies.


What do you guys do to spoil your horses?

my Paint loves his neck and mane itched and he will groom my other geldings and he hates it! But my paint will nose me and streach out and he loves it!

My mare loves getting her tail and butt scratched.
She's just a little too long to reach around, so when I do she sways back and forth like I'm a tree!
Hahah

With my moms mini he loves it when I stand behind him and scratch and scratch and scratch his back. He makes funny faces and practically lays his head on the ground. His lips go crazy.

I'm spoiling my horse Blaze tomorrow too! He's going to get a bath!lol I also spoil my boys with homemade treats and lots of them!!!! They also get pampered every time I'm at the barn especially Blaze sine he's 21 yr old and semi-retired! Sometimes I give them hay while I'm grooming if I'm not going to ride. Other times I jump on shaggy bareback and just loaf around the ring! Lol

Giving hay before riding is bad?
WOw. Stupid question.
I've always done that though.

Well honestly I don't know for sure. I as told it could cause them to colic if given before working them but since it was my ex trainer who told me that (and not everything that came out her mouth was true) I don't know wether to believe it. I don't think it would hurt if your just walking around bareback though. =)

Okay(:
I've never seen a horse here get sick from it.
But then again, it's mostly beginner lessons.
I warm up for a good 30/40 minutes of walk and trot before anything else.

I haven't either. =) I don't really see what difference is between that eating some hay before riding and eating grass when you go get them from field before you ride lol and you do a longer warm up then I do but I don't canter tho lol
