Sweet Smellin’ Ginger!

What Arabian girl doesn’t love her hair products and pampering?  Well until this matted tail little mare had met me, I’m not sure how she survived without spa treatments and pampering!  As you may know from earlier reports, while Ginger’s previous owner allowed her to eat at much as her round body could take, her skin and grooming were neglected.  If the mat in her tail, the size of a toy bat, wasn’t enough, the poor girl suffers from a...
