Coco had a brush today!
Garbo doing his little dance on the clay pile - telling Maraschino to get lost.
Yep - I was grooming the others and he lined himself up for some tail detangler, and then some tail brushing... so I got the rubber curry comb and started on his back as I knew that was his itchy spot from the other day. You know what he did? He moved back and forth for me to itch more extensively and he did the whole 'oh yeah just there' look...
I then started up round his neck, and then his shoulders, then under his neck, then the bottom of his neck, then his front legs (wow) and right up his neck to his ears and he just turned his head towards me - touched my hand and let me curry comb his cheeks.
So after all that - about 20 minutes of brushing while the other two stood very patiently waiting, he looked kind of less scruffy - ways to go yet though. You can see where some of his winter hair has come out.
OMG I swear Maraschino has got bigger in the last two weeks!!
Garbo came running up when he saw me
but then stood behind the gate because he didn't want to go in the mud I think... then he started yawning - finally I went and got him. He enjoyed a good scrub with the curry comb too... still so much loose hair.
