A Wash and Brush-Up!

Well? The weather was right, the sky was blue! So I thought that it was time to give the ol` Mare a wash an` brush up! Bad move!! I have never seen so much crud! Dont know how she does it!

The picture angle isnt clever! But the Mud? OMG!  Plus she was shedding like mad. So this was a before shot Now this is an after..well an almost nearly there shot!

Not too far to go now!  You can see her asking, “You`ve missed my feet! ..C`mon lets get a move on, have`nt got all day!  I told him, when I grow up, I`m going to be a proper  little madam!”

“Well look at her!  You wouldnt recognise her with all that mud off! Oh! And those feet!…Makes you shudder, needs a pedicure! Told her so yesterday, but would she listen? Oh no! Too good for us she is!”

  1. Oooh, what a filthy mare! Like how the dapples are coming out the more the winter coat comes off. Not warm enough here for a bath, by far - it's been stinking cold. But warmer weather on the weekend, so maybe some baths . . .

  2. What a pretty dapple grey! She looks like she is as enamored of mud as is my grey. Is it something about grey horses?

  13. Just wondering why Gracie's mane is cut short. I remember when a roached mane was all the style here. That was a long while ago.
