Yesterday with Michele's help, I gave Echo and Preacher baths! It was a good hot day for it. You can't bathe a big horse with a hose and not get wet!!! Preacher was good, no problem. Echo is afraid of things and you never know what it may be on any given day. We got him into the wash rack. I've been practicing with him doing that. He doesn't mind the water. One of us just kept talking to him, scratching him or giving him carrots while the other one scrubbed. He only freaked out once and ran out of the wash area. However he came back in with some coaxing. I didn't take any pictures as I was busy trying not to get killed!
Today they experimented putting the two herd of horses together in one large area so they could both get the benefit of the grassier pasture. Things went well and there were no big fights. Just some layed back ears and posturing while they are trying to figure out the new herd dynamics.
(Sorry for the finger. This was on my cell phone!)I'll be there again tomorrow.
