Labor Day Spa Day

Eli got today off, and a bath, and some clipping. It gave me a chance to try the Herbal Horse Organic Shampoo. Although I washed most of Eli’s body with a mix of baby shampoo and rosewater conditioner, I washed his mane, tail, and his hind cannons with the Herbal Horse shampoo. I got the tea tree & mint scent, and it smelled really, really good, but not overwhelming. Plus tea tree is good for keeping fungus at bay and soothing itchiness. So far, I love this stuff and want my own bottle!

slightlypeevedAs you can see, Eli was in need of a clip, so I clipped his muzzle and bridle path after he dried, and trimmed his tail just a bit. I managed to spend over 2 hours at the barn engaged in Eli’s spa day.

Yes, he did get to graze, finally!
