Cali has always been a little "nippy" so we don't hand feed her. Gigondas has the most gentle lips and has NEVER mistaken my fingers for a carrot. We have fed apples and carrots to all of our horses, especially Beauty and Gigondas, since they LOVE apples! And, in the heat we've had lately, it is a good way to get exra moisture into them. So, yesterday morning, when we arrived early at the ranch, the horses were still eating their breakfast. I gave Beauty and Sunni some carrots in the hope that I could get some fly repellant on them, since it is "fly season". NOPE! Beauty ran away from me (she's NEVER done that!) and Sunni eyed me with skepticism. I wasn't ever able to get any on Beauty. I was able to get some on Sunni (the roll on kind) after he decided I wasn't going to eat him (good boy!) Any ideas/suggestions on getting them to stand for fly spray?
The mustangs were busy eating, but stopped to look up when hubby showed up with a red bucket full of carrots. Cali was the most inquisitive.
