Today Was Bath Day!
After reading over at Nuzzling Muzzles , Our friend gave her three Arabians a bath, I thought, "I really need to do that." It's been over a month and it's about time. Besides, it's a good way to bond some more and Misty loves a bath. Kola will learn to love a bath.
So I gathered up the supplies and went out at 4pm, as the sun was beginning to retreat a bit. My trusty cooking spray for mane tangles, citronella shine shampoo, shiny spray, sponges, mane and tail comb, and bucket and hose.
After their baths, I discovered Misty has dapples. I bathed Kola first, and every time, I cleaned Kola's white, nearly impossible, Miss Misty stuck a dusty, dirt nose print on her. She was jealous and thought Kola wasn't as appreciative of the bath as she herself would be.
Kola ended up with a braided mane. I may braid Misty's mane tomorrow. Hope it lasts. Braided it's less likely to tangle and pick up burrs or weeds. Kola grew impatient through the braiding process, so they are a bit spaced out. They are both so soft now. I'm sure Misty is out there rolling in the dirt now!
