    This is why I practically refuse to bathe my horses.

    Horses I used to show had a knack for rolling around right after they were clipped and bathed. It got to the point where we'd just toss them in the stables after until after the show :p

    Diesel is still a tank! Haha

    I know. They're massive!! You definitely notice them crashing into your legs!

    Unfortunately I don't own the horses, they're owned by a friend of my mums who pays me to look after them and lets me ride one. (she's bringing another horse down in the summer for me to ride as well!!)

    Unfortunately I didn't have a choice. If my boss says do it, I have to. I usually don't bother except the night before a show and hosing off legs after we've been on the beach.

    You should have seen them after they were clipped! Luckily we had the sense to rug them. Copey (the chestnut) can't be rugged because he's got a cut on his hip probably due to rubbing although Captain might have done it because he enjoys beating poor Copey up. Captain just wasn't rugged because I was too lazy lol.

    Diesel's bloody massive!! He's almost outgrown his crate and we got him the extra large!
