Spa Day Lite

I have been trying to give my horse a bath allllll summer. I kept trying to line up that ever-elusive free time + good weather + energy & willingness equation, and it never worked.

Yeah, you read that right. I have not bathed my horse all summer. I am the worst.

I have scrubbed off some canon crud, and cleaned his sheath. I've diligently detangled his mane and tail when they got really bad. bath at all.

I hoped to do it this past Monday, but our temps are officially into fall. Unless we get a whopper of an indian summer in the next few weeks, it's just not going to happen.

On the other hand, my horse looks like a ragamuffin. Good grief.

Not even a hint at a bridle path. Sigh.

So instead of giving him a bath, I finally decided to do at least a small something: reclaim his bridle path.

Apparently I did a really, really good job getting him used to the clippers last year when I did a bib clip for the first time, because as soon as I turned them on he started mugging me for treats. GOOD PONY!

Ahhhhhhh, much better. I chose to make it a little more narrow this time around; the last few I've been less than thrilled with the wide swath that I took.


  1. We're not allowed to bathe due to the drought. Before shows I usually scrub pee off her legs and tail with a bucket, but that's about it. So don't feel too bad, they can survive without baths.

  2. lol wanna come clean up my mare's bridle path too?!? my horse is equally neglected lol
