Today was getting down to business with Sweetwater.
I managed to touch her with my loooog pole.
I was able to move her massive mane out of the way to see her tattoo. Guess I will have to actually look it up as to what it means.
I can sort of approach her from both sides. I was able to rub up around the halter.
Looks like she is doing some shedding. As long as I kept the pole along her top line she was kind of ok with it but got pretty touchy and jumpy anywhere else. There was no touching on the chest, girth or flank areas and very limited on the legs.
