    Our flea bitten Arab used to find the stickiest nastiness mess, be it mud or the sappy cottonwood tree that she found right after we had her cleaned up for a show......

    Is that fence (in the video) barbed wire [​IMG]?! And yes, horses just love to roll after a bath.... almost EVERY time! It's really neat that you caught it on camera though.

    We used to count how many times they would roll and then say that's how much this particular horse is worth. 7 rolls equals $700.00 and a complete roll you know what I mean...all the way over was worth an extra $1000.00 [​IMG]

    Quote:We always used to say that a complete roll over was $500 each time. Where did that come from??

    It was no big deal really. We were not going any where. Just the thought. I am doing it more to get her use to the water then anything else. It has been in the 90's here.

    I would have got better videos and pics but my battery pack was messing up in my camera.

    I had a horse when I was a teenager that would go to lay down when we walked into water.

    That is barb wire on the top strand right there. This fencing was already here when we moved in. Most of the fencing is 4-5 ft. horse fence and the top 2 strands are barb wire. I plan to replace it all the way around with electrical. It sags right there too and I don't like it.

    Good for you replacing it [​IMG]. Barbed wire is so dangerous for horses.
