gypsy went to a clinic =]

so gypsy got to go to a clinic at my friends barn yesterday ! She was super EXCEPT that over night she got sprayed by a skunk so she smelled really really horrible [& so did I from touching her & being around her ugh !]

But despite that, I was really proud of her. I wasnt sure if we were going to jump or not, but I just told the instructor we could see how it went, & we got to jump !

thanks =]

Oh don't worry, it still does.... gypsy is really nosy & loves to be the center of attention. She is feeling super neglected because no one wants to be around her or pet her !

Don't they have some sort of equine shampoo for this particular incident? I am sure someone had to of come up with somthing with how many stories I've heard about horses getting sprayed.

Lookin' good! Your horse is beautiful. Glad there's no smell on the internet!

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

I never thought of Ferret Shampoo!

I have 2 Ferrets, and I can see how their shampoo would work. Huh! Never thought of that!

Oh my gosh, I can't imagine having to ride a horse that got sprayed by a skunk, I get super grossed out when a horse rolls in a pee puddle and then I have to deal with them. Too bad I think it would be too difficult to bathe her in oatmeal or tomato juice.

You girl is very cute, I love the darker shades of bay.
