Her mane was disgusting... she has never had a long mane, but since I'm not really showing, I haven't gotten around to chopping it off this spring. Once I washed it, conditioned it, and sprayed in some Vetrolin, it looked quite pretty. I still prefer a short mane, but she can keep this one for a little while longer.
I also clipped her legs, which is something I always do in the spring. I had already done her front legs, but her back legs needed it desperately. It's partially because of the hair, but mostly because she's susceptible to icky fungus-y stuff that loves to grow on the front and back of her cannon bones. So I shave her down pretty close to the skin, scrub her good with anti-fungus soap, and then spritz her with apple cider vinegar. Having the hair shorter usually keeps the fungus from growing.
After her bath, I took her outside to get some condition photos for May. I think her weight is looking good, and I am still hoping she won't have to wear a muzzle...
