We’ve clipped Rufus hair off, he stood completely still and enjoyed every minute. His coat wasn’t like normal horse hair, it was woolly and unaturally thick, full of lice and dirt too, he was constantly itching. The big abscess on his back is nearly gone. It’s easy to see that he feels much better although the grease is still there and will have to work itself out as his condition improves. Whenever we brush him or even give him a pat, the grease is back.
Rufus loves to be groomed and wants it to go on and on, but pulls such a funny face while it is going on. He is a little pony full of character which makes all his years of loneliness even harder to think about. His recovery is going to be a long one but he is a model patient.
He is soon tired out so whatever we do, it’s a bit at a time.
