But there are times you can play Tom Sawyer and get someone else to do the work.
We took advantage of the cute little horses, and convinced my grandson and some of his girl friends that horse washing was fun!!! In the photo Grapenuts getting her first bath prior to clipping. Grandson is in the green shirt, he's the official holder since the girls don't know how to control the horses.
They washed four horses that day, and in the end everyone except the horses needed to take a shower. Don't know who got the wettest!!
