So, today, Luna got to hang out with me for a few hours. I decided that it was bath time and so she has been scrubbed thoroughly.
She was so dirty, she looked like she had chocolate foam. I was almost brown when I was done bathing her. She's clean, silky, soft and glossy now.
Now, here comes the "Your owner is a jerk" part. I've been working on our ground work. She came to me with zero manners and respect when she was being led. She's been doing really well with it until today. She kept squirming (warm weather, warm water) and just plain ol' pushy and wouldn't quit dancing. For hours she was this way. She had plenty of turn out before I got to the barn. She shouldn't have had so much piss and vinegar. (heheh...)
So, I figured, after hours of working her, demanding respect, and finally coming to the conclusion that I am. Just. Not. Getting. It. Today.
I put her in her stall. She went pee. And went. And went. And went.
All that time she wasn't dancing out of disrespect. It was the pee pee dance.
Poor girl. I feel like a real jerk now. She sure cleans up nice though...
