Monday [lack of] Motivation

I figured Olivia's comment needed it's own post this week because there was a behind the scenes moment that I had to share when I read her comment.


"Good job! I have to say she looks so white and clean despite all the mud. I can't even keep my non white horses clean; I don't know how you do it."

I really wish I had some fantastic story about how much elbow grease I put into keeping Katai so white and shiny but the truth is that she's had two baths this year and those were both prior to August...

Yeah, I didn't bathe my pony before this show. She was just still so white that it seemed silly! I probably still would have given her a bath if I hadn't expected the rain but as it was it seemed silly to put any more time in when I knew she was going to get covered in mud. Deeefffinetly won laziest horse owner award especially since I didn't even use a spot remover, just went through our normal grooming routine before we left. 

Katai really is just a princess pony and doesn't like to lay in her own poop :)

  2. Hahaha I love this! Tho now that you mention it, I knew a paint pony mare who was full of opinions and didn't care who knew it who was also apparently zealous about keepin herself shining white. The legs sometimes yellowed but the coat was always super bright!

    1. That's so funny! Yeah, her legs especially the back ones can get pretty dirty but otherwise she keeps herself so clean.
