We headed over to the stables knowing that we were not going to be able to ride. We expected to find LBR coated in mud and he did not disappoint us.
We took him down to the grooming stables to try and curry off the mud. It was too thick (> 1" in places) and too dry to brush off. We had to bath him to remove the mud which we wasn't to keen on (wanted to eat grass rather than stand and be bathed).
We finished the bath despite his protests and then allowed him to graze on the lead while he dried.
Afterwards, we headed back to the grooming stall for hoof cleaning, fly repellent and "manners".
We led him back to his paddock (uneventful) and fed him some treats.
It was almost dinner time, so we think his "stubbornness" was more out of desire for dinner than anything else tonight.
