It was so nice out on Sunday afternoon, that I decided to give my Christmas Mrs. Conns Bath Sponge (from Piccolo Pony!) a go if it was warm enough out at the barn.
|Complete mudball on the other side|
The tea tree bath sponge was easy and convenient - it lathered up nicely and rinsed out quickly. Tesla was clean and smelling fine in no time with a super soft and shiny coat. It was a great time saver not to need a bucket - so I think this would be a great option for shows/traveling. It will be interesting to see how many washes I can squeeze out of it :)
While she was totally chill during her bath (even when one of the barn guys was using a shovel practically under her nose) she came out of the wash rack squeaky clean and super FRESH. Some of the geldings were being brought out of pasture into the barn, and she puffed herself up at least three inches and started to prance - If I would've dropped the lead, she would've rounded them up and started her own herd, hahahaha!
This is the confidence I cannot wait to see under saddle :)
I took her into the arena to walk her until she was totally dry: ummm...and she wanted to roll SO BAD. She had one mini-meltdown cause she wasn't getting her way and then settled down in resignation. This feels me her feet are feeling much much better: I'll longe her soon and see!
