I could write soooo many silly tips and tricks down but I shall do my best to keep it short, sensible and Autumn related…
So first we have a couple of Aladdin related tips;
-As it gets muddier I tend to start putting pig oil on his feathers to prevent him getting muddy filthy legs, the pig oil makes brushing all the filth off so much easier.
-Also with the mud well on the way I plait his tail into three big plaits (Poor Aladdin I know) and run baby oil through them to keep his tail clean and tangle free.
** I have also seen a couple of videos online of people using plastic pan scourers to remove mud from their horses ~ If anybody has tried this please let me know how you get on**
Tips for making our lives easier;
-With the nights drawing in I try and get as many hay nets as possible filled on a Sunday saving at least five minutes of head torch hay bale scrambling on a week night.
-Keep spare gloves and socks at the yard or in your car, or maybe just do what I do and lug around your entire equestrian wardrobe (car-drobe) in case of a monsoon/heatwave/hurricane.
