bath time!

Today I gave the horse with no name a bath. I wasn't sure how she would react, so I took it very slow. I groomed her first, then let her smell the hose and touched her all over with it. Finally, I turned the water on and started at her feet. She didn't mind a all! The only time she got antsy was when I washed her main. She always shies her head away when I reach up. But no worries, I will fix that. . . eventually.

After her bath, I took her outside so I could get her water and clean her stal. When I was done, I went outside to get her and she promptly rolled and somehow got out of her halter! In order to get it on, I had to put a pepermint in my hand and put my hand through the halter. So back into the wash rack we went.

I hope she is getting used to me and getting to know me. I know its only been a few days, but I really want to bond with her. I kinda feel like I am on my own with her. Mike probably won't come out with me and I don't blame him. .  I wouldn't want to watch him golf! Robin is always helpful, but she has her own plans with her horse, Ryleigh. Kathy has also been helpful. But it's just me, trying to figure this out. And sometimes Leslie. . .I really need to start lessons with her!  When I really stop to think about it, I think I need someone to hold my hand through this process because I don't know what I'm doing. But I will figure it out, me and the horse with no name.
