I discovered Theo's new favorite thing ever yesterday.
Yes, I am using his tail brush on his ears. The inside of his ears. I've been using that brush along his crest and withers, but while brushing out his forelock I went to brush out the owl tufts in his ears as a joke. Mi papi was in heaven, leaning into it and head around his ankles. He loves having his forelock brushed out and now I have to add brushing out his owl tufts. He'll be so happy this weekend when I have to clip those ears to get him back into show form. He loves anything that involves touching his ears.
This is the same horse that falls asleep with a happy sigh when I start working on his tail and makes groans that are almost obscene when the massage therapist is out. Maybe he really was always meant to be a show horse. He certainly enjoys the primping and grooming enough.
Appointment made with my favorite farrier for next week and I get to keep him this time! Woohoo, new very expensive shoes! Woo . . . hoo . . .
Ramen for dinner it is.
